Answer:

#3x^2 + 6x + 18#

Here's how I did it:

Explanation:

To solve this, we distribute or multiply the #3# with everything inside the parenthesis:
#3 * x^2 = 3x^2#

#3 * 2x = 6x#

#3 * 6 = 18#

Therefore, we can combine all these expressions and write the product:
#3x^2 + 6x + 18#

Hope this helps!
