4(3x) + 4(-2)  +  6x(2) + 6x(-1) 12x - 8 + 12x - 6x 12x + 6x -8 = 18x - 8 Good luck! :)

You simplify expressions by distributing where possible and combining like terms where possible. 4(3x - 2) + 6x(2 - 1) 12x - 8 + 12x - 6x <--- Used the distributive property for both parentheses. 18x - 8                  <--- Combined like terms. So, B. 18x - 8 is the answer.
