A
100
B
213
C

## The correct option is B $$21,300$$The Distributive Property is easy to remember if you recall that "multiplication distributes over addition". Formally, they write this property as $$"a(b + c) = ab + ac".$$$$213\times 45 + 213 \times 55$$$$= 213 \times (45 + 55)$$ ($$\because$$ distributive property)$$= 213\times 100$$$$= 21,300$$.Mathematics
