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
