Distributive property is simple. It basically distributes. (What? lol)

Anyway, let's give you some examples.

For example, we have:

2(4x+1)

You can see that the 2 there is a constant and it has to be distributed.

So, to distribute that, you just need to multiply 2 with both the terms and you will have:

(2*4x)+(2*1)

And finally, you get:

8x+2

yay
