Simplify by first distributing the 4 to the group (x+3) using multiplication=> 4x+12+9. Add like terms 12 and nine=>4x+21 is the final answer.

First, you have to distribute the 4 over the addition problem of x+3. That will give 4x + 12, and you still have to add the 9 from the original expression.
Since 12 and 9 are both numbers, they are "like terms" and you can add their values.
The final, simplified expression is 4x + 21.
