# How do you use the distributive property to rewrite and evaluate 7(13+12)?

$7 \left(13 + 12\right) \implies \left(7 \times 13\right) + \left(7 \times 12\right) \implies 91 + 84 \implies 175$
Expand the terms within the parenthesis by multiplying each by $7$:
$7 \left(13 + 12\right) \implies \left(7 \times 13\right) + \left(7 \times 12\right) \implies 91 + 84 \implies 175$
