    Well, you would want to combine all the like terms. This means to get all the variables (x) together, and all the normal numbers together. 1) Use the distributive property to distribute the -3 to the stuff in the parentheses. So: 2-3x-3-4x 2) Now you can combine all the like terms. 2-3= -1 -3x-4x= -7x 3) Final Answer: -1-7x
