    Jenny508, try applying the same concept from the previous problem I answered for you and you will be able to figure this guy out. ^_^

    The only thing is that you should be careful of your signs What is a negative multiplied by a negative?

    Sorry for speaking so quickly, there is a very small error in your answer...think about the question about the product of two negatives above and revise your answer

    You're on the right track. For the x terms, we get 6x-3x, which is equal to 3x For the y terms we get -3*-2y, which would equal 6, but is that six positive or negative?

    Right, its one of those two answers. In this case, since you are multiplying two negatives (3 and 2) the result will be positive 6. So the answer 3x+6y would be the correct one in this case.
