Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

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

#1 + color(red)(4)(6p - 9) =>#

#1 + (color(red)(4) xx 6p) - (color(red)(4) xx 9) =>#

#1 + 24p - 36#

Next, group like terms:

#24p - 36 + 1#

Now, combine like terms:

#24p + (-36 + 1)#

#24p + (-35)#

#24p - 35#
