Answer:

# =color(blue)(-8x ) + color(green)( 66y) -32k + 7h#

Explanation:

#3x +7h +y - (-8k) -11x +65y +(-40k)#

Simplifying the expression by grouping like terms:

# =color(blue)(3x -11x ) + color(green)( y +65y) - (-8k) +(-40k) + 7h#

# =color(blue)(3x -11x ) + color(green)( y +65y) + 8k -40k + 7h#

# =color(blue)(-8x ) + color(green)( 66y) -32k + 7h#
