color(red)(2-9[4-(3y-6)]

Based on PEMDAS, we solve the Parenteses first

$2 - 9 \cdot \left[4 - 3 y + 6\right]$

$2 - 9 \cdot \left[10 - 3 y\right]$

Then we perform the Multiplication using the Distributive Property

$2 - \left[9 \cdot 10 - 9 \cdot 3 y\right]$

$2 - \left[90 - 27 y\right]$

$2 - 90 + 27 y$

color(green)(-88 + 27y is the simplified form of color(red)(2-9[4-(3y-6)]
