    \[ 6(x-2)+3x\] \[6x-6\times 2+3x\] \[6x-12+3x\] \[6x+3x-12\] \[9x-12\] any question about any step?

    6(x-2) is the same as 6 times x and 6 times -2. After multiplying each, you get 6x and -12. Add the 3x to the 6x to get 9x - 12.

    5(2x-3y) is the same as (5 times 2x) + (5 times -3y), which yields 10x - 15y. Looking at the -(x+y), you get 9x - 16y when you combine them.
