Jun 4, 2017

$2 \cdot {x}^{2} + 6 \cdot x - 6 \cdot x - 18$
$2 \cdot {x}^{2} - 18$

#### Explanation:

you multiply the $2 \cdot X$ by the 2nd braket then$- 6$ with the 2nd braket and the collect terms

$\textcolor{g r e e n}{2 {x}^{2} - 18}$

#### Explanation:

$\left(2 x - 6\right) \left(x + 3\right)$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a a a a a a a a a}$$2 x - 6$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a a a a a a a}$$\times \underline{x + 3}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a a a a a a a a a}$$2 {x}^{2} - 6 x$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a}$$+ 6 x - 18$
