Write an algebraic expression that requires each of the following properties of real
numbers to simplify, in the order given: the Distributive Property, the Associative
Property of Addition, the Commutative Property of Addition, and the Distributive
Property. Simplify the expression showing the use of each property.
i don't understand this at all can somebody give me an example of this?

Me either. No expression requires the associative/commutative property to simplify it.
A.P means that (2+3)+4 = 2+(3+4) but you don't need it to evaluate.
C.P. means that 3+4 = 4+3 but you don't need it.
The only one you need to evaluate an expression is the D.P., so you can say
(2+3)(4) = 2*4 + 3*4 = 6+12 = 18

so (2+3)(4)=2*4+3*4=6+12=18
would be a possible answer to this question?
