The property is distributive…. it is easier to understand if you place it in these terms….

4(6) * 4(8) = 4(6+8)

We achieve this simplified answer because both products have the same common factor ( via a 4) so the 4’s can be grouped together. This leaves the 6 and the 8 which needed to be added because the 4’s were combined. Hope this helps!!! 😉

That would be the distributive property because you’ve just distributed the values. In the distributive property, you put things in parenthesis to shorten it out.
