Answer:D. Distributive proprety

Step-by-step explanation:Because you have to distribute 2 to make it 2x and then do 2 (12) which is 24 and then add 2 to it again which equals 40

Equation: 2(x – 12) + 2 = 40

1.

E) Division property of equality: Allows us to divide the whole equation, here, by 2, which gives usx – 12 + 1 = 202.

C) Combine like terms: Allows us to combine like terms, here, combining on the left side of the equation gives usx – 11 = 203.

A) Addition property of equality: Allows us to subtract the whole equation, here, by 11, gives us x = 31
