    factor out what the two terms have in common, then combine like terms.

    2) -4[5(2x+3y)-4(x+2y)]

    distribute the terms inside the [brackets], combine like terms, then factor out any common factor(s) you may see.

    For first one take (p+q) common and regroup :
    (p+q)(......) proceed ..

    For second one you must multiply the terms :
    -4(10x+15y - 4x -8y)
    ....proceed....
