when you have a minus sign next to parentheses like that its the same thing as this: \[(1)(6p + 12)\]

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?
