Notice the subtraction sign

 

That actually is a "multiply by negative 1"

 

So distribute the negative 1 like you normally distribute.

 

Then remove parentheses and combine like terms. Try it.

I personally have a big problem remembering to distribute negatives. This has caused me to fail a "few" problems...

2y^3 + 4y^2 - 3y - 1 is the answer.
