Algebra - Distributive Law - expansion

Distributive Law - expansion

The process of removing the brackets is called expansion and the rule for
expanding expressions is called the Distributive Law that states that:

The expression_ a_(_b_+_c_) is in factorised form as it is the product of
two factors namely _a_ and (_b_+_c_). To expand the expression a(b+c), each
term in the brackets is multiplied by the term outside the brackets.

The expression_ ab_+_ac_ does not contain any brackets and is in expanded
form.
