I need some advice with this problem. Simplify as indicated. State at least one property of multiplication or division that would prove your simplification process correct.

A. -(n+4), to eliminate the parentheses. B. 6(-s), to eliminate the parentheses. C. 8(24-n), to eliminate the parentheses. D. 12n divided by 12, to reduce the number of symbols. Here is how I answered this: A, B and C are distributive property of multiplication because I am distributing the term outside of the parentheses to all terms inside the parentheses. D. is identity property of division. Is my answers correct?
