# Solving two-step linear equations using distributive property: $\;a\left( {x + b} \right) = c$ - Basic Algebra

### Solving two-step linear equations using distributive property: $\;a\left( {x + b} \right) = c$

Distributive property is an algebra property that we use all the time! When you see equations in the form of a(x+b), you can transform them into ax+ab by multiplying the terms inside a set of parentheses. In this section, we will make use of this property to help us solve linear equations.
