\[ 6(x2)+3x\]
\[6x6\times 2+3x\]
\[6x12+3x\]
\[6x+3x12\]
\[9x12\] any question about any step?

6(x2) 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(2x3y) 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.
