The distributive property can make quick work of an algebra problem that might, at first blush, appear very daunting. See how to use it with this free video math lesson. From Ramanujan to calculus cocreator Gottfried Leibniz, many of the world's best and brightest mathematical minds have belonged to autodidacts. And, thanks to the Internet, it's easier than ever to follow in their footsteps (or just finish your homework or study for that next big test). With this installment from Internet pedagogical superstar Salman Khan's series of free algebra tutorials, you'll learn how to find the greatest common factor of a group of monomials by using the distributive property.
