By using distributive property the following statement is true.

this is a rule you need to learn for any numbers a,b,c distributing means a(b+c)=ab+ac remember this rule, it is very important

@davian +6x12 does make sense, it's just not conventional notation

It's just asking you to write "By using distributive property the following statement is true." And then use the general theory that turingtest wrote out

it is asking you to prove that one side is the same as the other: 6(x  2)=6x  12 (distributive property) about the whole "describe it in complete sentences" thing, I guess you could say "by multiplying each term in the parentheses by the coefficient outside, you find that both sides are the same" yes, the distributive property is what gives us the answer.

I would prefer to prove it a different way, but not with words...
