Answer:

When simplifying, all you do is expand and add like terms. In this case, you get >#=-13x^2-9x-27#.

Explanation:

When simplifying, all you do is expand and add like terms.

#-3(5x^2+2x+9)+x(2x-3)#

Now we add like terms.

#=-15x^2-6x-27+2x^2-3x#

#=-13x^2-9x-27#

I don't know if this is what you want though... If you want to simplify in order to solve it, then you have to put it into quadratic formula and simplify it there.

NOTE: I graphed the equation and it came out negative; non-existent parabola.

Hope this helps :)
