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

    Remember order of operations

    Parenthasese
    Exponents
    Multiplication
    Division
    Addition
    Subtraction

    First we have to multply the -2(3-2x)

    4y-3[x-6+4x-4y]

    next we simplify inside the brackets

    4y-3[-6+5x-4y]

    next we multiply -3 through

    4y+18-15x+12y

    16y-15x+18
