Dec 7, 2016

$- 6 a + 4 b$

#### 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.

$- 2 \left(3 a - 2 b\right) \to - 2 \cdot 3 a - - 2 \cdot 2 b \to$

$- 6 a - - 4 b$

$- 6 a + 4 b$
