    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 us x – 12 + 1 = 20

    2. C) Combine like terms: Allows us to combine like terms, here, combining on the left side of the equation gives us x – 11 = 20

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