# An art club sells 23 small candles and 42 large candles each week. Write an expression showing the total number of candles they sell each in 7 weeks.

## 23(7 + 42)    7(23 + 42)    42(7 + 23)    7(23 × 42) Hint:

## The correct answer is: 7(23 + 42)

### In the question it is given that,The number of large candles the art club sells= 42The number of small candles the art club sells = 23Here, we have to find the total number of candles they sell in 1 week.Total number of candles = (23+42)Total number of candles they sell in one week i.e. 7 days = 7(23 + 42)So, total number of candles they sell in one week is 7(23 + 42).Therefore, the correct option is b, i.e., 7(23 + 42).

In distributive property, when a factor is to be multiplied with the sum of two numbers, we do not directly add the two numbers and then multiply the sum with the factor. Rather, we multiply both the numbers with the factor differently and then add the multiplication value.
