    Hello,

    I'm not quite sure what help you need, but I presume that you should expand this product:

    x^2(2x+3y-6) =2x^3+3x^2y-6x^2

    I hope that this will help you little bit further.

    Greetings

    It's the same thing as the distributive property. Think 2\left(3+4\right)=2\cdot3+2\cdot4

    Therefore x^2(2x+3y-6)=x^2\cdot2x+ x^2\cdot3y+x^2\cdot(-6)=2x^3+3x^2y-6x^2
