Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

First, expand the terms in parenthesis by multiplying each term within the parenthesis by the term outside the parenthesis:

#color(red)(-4d)(5d^2 - 12) + color(blue)(7)(d + 5)#

#(color(red)(-4d) * 5d^2) + (color(red)(-4d) * -12) + (color(blue)(7) * d) + (color(blue)(7) * 5)#

#-20d^3 + 48d + 7d + 35#

Now, combine like terms:

#-20d^3 + (48 + 7)d + 35#

#-20d^3 + 55d + 35#
