    Just the distribute −6x^2 and -2 that'll make it so you can narrow the answer down to the correct one, or you can do the rest too lol

    \[−6x^2(4x − 7x^2 − 2)\] \[=-6x^2\times 4x-6x^2\times (-7x^2)-6x^2\times (-2)\] is the first step

    as @gaara438125 said, the last term will be \(+12x^2\) which narrows the answer to one choice

    satellite73 explained the process \[−6x^2(4x − 7x^2 − 2)\] \[(-6x^2\times 4x) + (-6x^2\times -7x^2) + (-6x^2\times -2)\]
