Explanation:

$3 x + 7 h + y - \left(- 8 k\right) - 11 x + 65 y + \left(- 40 k\right)$

Simplifying the expression by grouping like terms:

$= \textcolor{b l u e}{3 x - 11 x} + \textcolor{g r e e n}{y + 65 y} - \left(- 8 k\right) + \left(- 40 k\right) + 7 h$

$= \textcolor{b l u e}{3 x - 11 x} + \textcolor{g r e e n}{y + 65 y} + 8 k - 40 k + 7 h$

$= \textcolor{b l u e}{- 8 x} + \textcolor{g r e e n}{66 y} - 32 k + 7 h$
