#### Answer

(i) The statement is false.
(ii) The correct statement would be:
It is necessary to use the distributive property to solve $P=C + MC$ for $C$.

#### Work Step by Step

The equation has two terms that contain the variable C. This means that there is a need to combine them before you can isolate C on one side of the equation.
Thus, to solve for C in the given equation, the distributive property must be used to find:
$P=C + MC
\\P=C(1+M)
\\\dfrac{P}{1+M} = C$
Therefore, the given statement is false.
