#1**+2 **

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! |
