    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

    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

    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?
