###### Distributive Property - Division

The distributive property for division helps in solving expressions like $${b + c \over a}$$. It specifies that the result of dividing a fraction with multiple terms in the numerator and one term in the denominator can be obtained by dividing each term individually and then totaling the results: $${b + c \over a} = {b \over a} + {c \over a}$$. For example, $${a^3 + 6a^2 \over a^2} = {a^3 \over a^2} + {6a^2 \over a^2} = a + 6$$.

##### distributive

$${b + c \over a} = {b \over a} + {c \over a}$$ defines the __________ property for division.
