Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because you "distribute" the 4 with the five and with the six and then add them together e.g. 4(5) +4(6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question is just asking if it uses the distributive property. Here is a little chart of properties http://www.regentsprep.org/regents/math/algebra/AN1/properties.htm which one fits the example in the question?
