Answer:

#6x^2-8xy#

Explanation:

#color(blue)(2x) color(green)((3x-4y))#

Multiply everything inside the bracket by #color(blue)(2x)#

so first we have # color(blue)(2x) xx color(green)((+3x)) ->color(red)( 6x^2)#

so second we have # color(blue)(2x) xx color(green)((-4y)) ->color(red)( -8xy)#

Putting this all together

#color(red)( 6x^2-8xy )#
