when you have a minus sign next to parentheses like that its the same thing as this: \[(-1)(6p + 12)\]
and now you just have to distribute that negative one to each term inside the parentheses

which part? changing the minus sign to negative one or distributing?
Parenthesis means nothing when they are surrounding a number, or a group of numbers, when not used in a longer problem. For example, -(6) is just -6. Or -(a+b) is still -a+b.
-(a + b) does not equal -a + b, you must distribute the negative sign to each term in the parentheses
Right, sorry. You corrected that for me, haha. Saw that wrong.
Simplify −(6p + 12) =>(-6p - 12) ◄ Ans 6p − 12 ← same 6p + 12 ← same −6p + 12 => -(6p + 12) => (-6p - 12) ◄ Ans −6p − 12 =>-(6p -12) => (-6p + 12) ◄ Ans
(-1x 6p) + (-1x12) =-6p -12. See how that works?
Yea
