The question : 15 * (-3865)
The distributive property states that
a(b+c) = ab+ac .
Here , there are only 2 terms , namely a and b.
Here , a=15 , b= -3865 and there is no c.
Therefore,  by distributive property we get:
a(b) = 15(-3865)
Here we are bound to directly multiply
⇒= -(15*3865)
=-(57975)
=-57975
Ans:The required solution is -57975.
