    Answer:The product of (-6) (-3) by distributive property is 18

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Distributive properties are used in arithmetic multiplication and division to reduce the time and to answer faster.

    (-6) (-3) can be written as (-6) (-2 (+) - 1)

    By distributive property of multiplication

    (-6) (-2 (+) - 1) = { (-6) (-2) + (-6) (-1) }

    = { 12 + 6} = 18

    since the product of (-) (-) = (+)

    multiplying two negative number gives a positive number.

    Therefore the answer is 18.
