Answer:

#-5g-6#

Explanation:

first, rearrange the terms so that like terms (ones with the same variable [and raised to the same power, but that doesn't apply here]) are next to one another.

#+g-6g-7+1#

we don't need to show the + sign in from of the g, because we assume it's positive unless there's a - sign

#g-6g-7+1#

next, combine the like terms

#g-6g=-5g#
#-7+1=-6#

finally, put the two combined terms together

#-5g-6#
and that's your answer
