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?

8. dmezzullo

9. dmezzullo

simplier terms plz

10. tyteen4a03

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