# How do you use the Distributive Property to expand the expression 7(9x-2)?

You multiply the term outside the parenthesis, in this case $\textcolor{red}{7}$ by each term inside the parenthesis:
$\textcolor{red}{7} \left(9 x - 2\right) \to \left(\textcolor{red}{7} \times 9 x\right) - \left(\textcolor{red}{7} \times 2\right) \to$
$63 x - 14$
