    okay, all your going to do is multiply everything in the first set of parentheses by the second. start with the first: -4h*3h=? -4h*7=? 2*3h=? 2*7=? fill it in

    that should give you \[-4h^{2}-28h+6h+14\]combine like terms\[-4h^{2}-22h+14\]

    -4h*3h=-12h^2 -4h*7=-28h 2*3h=6h 2*7=14 when combined it is -12h^2-22h+14
