$24 p - 28$

#### Explanation:

The 2 terms inside the bracket are being multiplied by - 4.

This can also be expressed as.

$\left(- 6 p + 7\right) \times - 4 = - 4 \left(- 6 p + 7\right)$

now distribute the bracket.

$\Rightarrow \left(- 4 \times - 6 p\right) + \left(- 4 \times 7\right) = 24 p - 28$
