Answer:

Use the distributive property to get
#color(white)("XXX")x^2+5x+6#

Explanation:

#(color(red)(x)+color(blue)(2))(color(green)(x+3))#

#color(white)("XXX")=color(red)(x)(color(green)(x+3))+color(blue)(2)(color(green)(x+3))#

#color(white)("XXX")=color(red)(x^2+3x) + color(blue)(2x+6)#

#color(white)("XXX")=color(red)(x^2)+5x+color(blue)(6)#
