I will simplify this expression, \(2(3x-1)-5(3x-1)\)

 

\(2(3x-1)-5(3x-1)\) This is the original expression. First, distribute the 2 into both terms in the parentheses. 
\(6x-2-5(3x-1)\) Distribute -5 into both terms in the other parentheses
\(6x-2-15x+5\) Combine like terms. Combine the linear terms (the ones with an x) and the constants separately.
\(-9x+3\) You are done!
