The distributive property says that you need to expand or multiply each factor . In this case since you have a product between 2 expression  (p-5) and 5 , you multiply 5 by each term within the paranthesis. So you have 5*p  - 5*5 = 5p -25


I agree with your statement but it is (p-4)5. Which means 5*p-4*5. Which equals 5p-20
