# Another form of the Distributive Property (See Exercise 33) reads b ⋅ a + c ⋅ a = ( b + c ) a . Use this form to rewrite 5 x + 7 x . Then simplify.When the Distributive Property is written in its symmetric form it reads a ⋅ b + a ⋅ c = a ( b + c ) . Use this form to rewrite 5 x + 5 y .

To determine

To find:

The simplified form of the given expression by a form of Distributive Property.

Explanation

Given:

The given equation is 5x+7x and the given property is distributive property.

Property:

A form of Distributive Property of Equality is,

ba+ca=(b+c)a.

Calculation:

Rewrite the given expression by using dot to show multiplication.

5x+7x=5x+7x

Rewrite the above expression by using the form of Distributive Property
