# How do you combine #3( x - 4y ) + 2( x + 3y )#?

See a solution process below:

First, expand the terms in parenthesis by multiplying each term within the parenthesis by the term outside the parenthesis:

Next, group like terms:

Now, combine like terms:

To combine the expression (3(x - 4y) + 2(x + 3y)), you need to distribute the coefficients and then combine like terms:

(3(x - 4y) + 2(x + 3y))

(= 3x - 12y + 2x + 6y)

Now, combine like terms:

(= (3x + 2x) + (-12y + 6y))

(= 5x - 6y)

So, (3(x - 4y) + 2(x + 3y)) simplifies to (5x - 6y).
