Distributive property

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL: The distributive property states that for any real numbers $a, b,$and $c$, $a(b+c) = a\cdot b + a\cdot c.$ In the given statement, $100(7)-3(7)=7(100-3)$, which is equivalent to $97(7)$. Thus, the given equation illustrates the Distributive Property.
