Answer:

#=color(blue)(2x^3 +7x^2 -21x +9#

Explanation:

#color(blue)((2x−3))(x^2+5x−3)#

Each term within the first bracket needs to be multiplied with each of the three terms within the second bracket.

#=color(blue)((2x))(x^2+5x−3) - color(blue)((3))(x^2+5x−3)#

#=2x^3+10x^2-6x - 3x^2 -15x +9#

Grouping like terms

#=2x^3 +(10x^2 - 3x^2) + (-6x -15x) +9#

#=color(blue)(2x^3 +7x^2 -21x +9#
