    Is D supposed to be (9 x 12) + (9 x 7) instead of (9 + 7)?

    The answer choices you have right now suggests that they're looking for the distributive property.

    Great. So how would you distribute the equation 9(12+7) ?

    You multiply 9 to each of the numbers in the parentheses. So (9*12) + (9*7)
