Answer:

#24a^2 - 18ab#

Explanation:

To simplify this, we need to use the Distributive Property of Multiplication. Basically, we need to multiply the outside term by the individual terms inside the parentheses, then combine the products:

#3a * 8a = 3 * a * 8 * a = 3 * 8 * a * a = 24a^2#
#3a * #-#6b = 3 * a * #-#6 * b = 3 * #-#6 * a * b = #-#18ab#
