Take it step by step.

First you add 7. So what do you end up with after this first step?

That's not adding 7... that's multiplying by 7.

I’m not sure then, I thought x + 7 and x * 7 = the same thing

Definitely not.

Multiplication is repeated addition. 7x = \underbrace{x + x + x + x + x + x + x}_{\text{seven lots}}.

After you add 7 you end up with x+7.


The next step is to take this number and multiply it by 5. What do you end up with?

So is it x + 35?

Nope. You forgot to multiply the x by five as well. So it's 5(x+7).
