**Question: 35**

**13.** If ab = n, b + c = x, and n ≠ 0, which of the following must equal n?

A. ax + c

B. ax - c

C. ax - ac

D. ax - cx

E. ac - ax

**Correct Answer:** C

**Explanation:**

C. Because b + c = x, b = x - c. So you can substitute (x - c) for b in the first equation, and write a(x - c) = n. Because of the parentheses, you have to use the distributive law to get ax - ac = n, which is Choice (C).
