Answer:

#color(red)(8y-12)#

Explanation:

#color(blue)(5(3y-2)) - (color(magenta)(7y+2))#

#color(white)("XXX")=color(blue)(15y-10) -(color(magenta)(7y+2))#

#color(white)("XXX")=color(blue)(15y)-color(magenta)(7y)color(blue)(-10)-color(magenta)2#

#color(white)("XXX")=color(white)("xx")8ycolor(white)("xxxxx")-12#
