Simply understand what multiplication means:

412 * 378 means 378 times 412 is added.
412 * 379 means 379 times 412 is added.

So 412 * 379 will be a 412 more than 412 * 378

Which is A + 412

Answer (D)

412*379 = 412(378 + 1) = 412*378 + 412

Since 412*378 = A, then 412*378 + 412 = A + 412.

Given: 412 * 378 = A

Question: 412 * 379 = ?

We can solve it by factoring 412 * 379

412 * (378 + 1)

(412 * 378) + 412

A + 412

Hence (D)
