I'm assuming you mean simplify? I'm gonna do that.

$$-6t*4m*(-m)$$

-m can be expressed as -1*m, and -6t can be expressed as -1*6t: $$-1*-1*6t*4m*m$$

-1 * -1 = 1: $$1*6t*4m*m=6t*4m*m$$

m * m = m2$$6t*4m*m=6t*4*(m*m)=6t*4*m^2$$

Factor out 2: $$2(3t*2m^2)$$

The simplest form of the expression is $$(2(3t*2m^2))...or...(6t*4m^2)$$

It's not the simplest form ._.

$$-6t \cdot 4m \cdot (-m)\\ =(-6\cdot 4)\cdot(t\cdot m\cdot(-m))\\ =-24(-tm^2)\\ =24tm^2$$

Simplest form should be 24tm^2...
