“The Distributive Property of Multiplication

**over**Addition”.

1) 3x(4+6) = 3x10 = 30

2) 3x(4+6) = 3x4+3x6 = 30

It means the second way of solving the problem, that is, the '3' is "distributed" between '4' and '6'.

The question is, what does "

**over**" mean here? In Russian, we use "regarding" here.

Thank you.
