Use the Distributive Property to rewrite each of the expressions below. Then simplify.

1. $12(309)$

• First, try writing this problem as $12(300 + 9)$. Then apply the Distributive Property.

$12(300) + 12(9)$
$3600 + 108$
$3708$

1. $8(100 + 10 + 8)$

• Use part (a) as a guide. Remember that you will multiply $8$ by every term in the sum.
