Multiply both g and -12 by 1/4, this is what the distributive property is about.

\[\frac 14 ( g-12)\]
According to Distributive property
\[A(B+C)=A\times B +A\times C\]
\[\frac 14 (g-12)\]\[=\frac 1 4\times g- \frac 14 \times 12\]
Now would simplify this?

This is the simplest term possible. Note that how A is "distributed" to B and C.
