$2 x \left(3 x - 4 y\right) = 6 {x}^{2} - 8 x y$

#### Explanation:

$6 {x}^{2} - 8 x y$

You have to distribute $2 x$ through each of the terms. Multiply $3 x$ by $2 x$ and then multiply $- 4 x$ by $2 y$.

$6 {x}^{2} - 8 x y$

#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{b l u e}{2 x} \textcolor{g r e e n}{\left(3 x - 4 y\right)}$

Multiply everything inside the bracket by $\textcolor{b l u e}{2 x}$

so first we have $\textcolor{b l u e}{2 x} \times \textcolor{g r e e n}{\left(+ 3 x\right)} \to \textcolor{red}{6 {x}^{2}}$

so second we have $\textcolor{b l u e}{2 x} \times \textcolor{g r e e n}{\left(- 4 y\right)} \to \textcolor{red}{- 8 x y}$

Putting this all together

$\textcolor{red}{6 {x}^{2} - 8 x y}$
