Answer:

Use the distributive property.

Explanation:

The distributive property states that #a(b+c)=a*b+a*c#. Let's use that on our parentheses in the problem:

#-(6-3x)=-1*6+ -1*-3x=-6+3x#

Our expression now reads:

#4x-6+3x#

Next, let's simplify our expression to get our answer:

#4x-6+3x=7x-6#
