Sam ran a distance represented by the expression 2x + 12. Lee ran a distance represented by the expression 6x + 36.

Which describes how the distance that Lee ran compares to the distance that Sam ran?

A.) The distance that Lee ran is 2 times the distance that Sam ran

B.) The distance that Lee ran is 3 times the distance that Sam ran

C.) The distance that Lee ran is 4 times the distance that Sam ran

D.) The distance that Lee ran is 6 times the distance that Sam ran

**Sam = 2x + 12**

Lee = 6x + 36

Lee = 6x + 36

If 3 is factored out of 6x + 36,

it becomes 3(2x + 12).

In other words, 3(Sam's distance)

**B.) The distance that Lee ran is 3 times the distance that Sam ran**
