Answer:

#-6a + 4b#

Explanation:

To apply the Distributive Property you must multiply the term outside the parenthesis by each term within the parenthesis. Ensure you pay close attention to signs. Remember a negative number times a negative number is a positive number.

#-2(3a - 2b) -> -2*3a - -2*2b ->#

#-6a - -4b#

#-6a + 4b#
