Best answer
It is the property used to multiply 3 or more terms,

For example, 3(2x + 5y)

      applying distributive property we have, 6x + 15y

 

The distributive property simply means that if a number is broken into parts and each part is multiplied, the answer is the same as when the number is multiplied as a whole.
