color(green)(7h-70

#### Explanation:

color(blue)(7(h-10)

Use the distributive property

$\textcolor{b r o w n}{a} \left(\textcolor{red}{b} + \textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{c}\right) = \textcolor{b r o w n}{a} \textcolor{red}{b} + \textcolor{b r o w n}{a} \textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{c}$

$\therefore \textcolor{b r o w n}{7} \left(\textcolor{red}{h} + \textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{10}\right) = \textcolor{b r o w n}{7} \cdot \textcolor{red}{h} - \textcolor{b r o w n}{7} \cdot \textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{10}$
