Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

To multiply these two terms you multiply each individual term in the left parenthesis by each individual term in the right parenthesis.

#(color(red)(h) - color(red)(2))(color(blue)(3h) - color(blue)(5))# becomes:

#(color(red)(h) xx color(blue)(3h)) - (color(red)(h) xx color(blue)(5)) - (color(red)(2) xx color(blue)(3h)) + (color(red)(2) xx color(blue)(5))#

#3h^2 - 5h - 6h + 10#

We can now combine like terms:

#3h^2 + (-5 - 6)h + 10#

#3h^2 + (-11)h + 10#

#3h^2 - 11h + 10#
