See the solution process below:

Explanation:

To multiply these two terms you multiply each individual term in the left parenthesis by each individual term in the right parenthesis.

#(color(red)(x) + color(red)(3))(color(blue)(y) - color(blue)(4))# becomes:

#(color(red)(x) xx color(blue)(y)) - (color(red)(x) xx color(blue)(4)) + (color(red)(3) xx color(blue)(y)) - (color(red)(3) xx color(blue)(4))#

#xy - 4x + 3y - 12#
