Hello.

This question may seem a little unusual but I'm desperate about it.

So I have this equation:

y = (x^2 + 3x) - (2x + 3)(x - 1)

my question is: do I have to first apply the minus sign, or do the parenthesis first? I'm really confused about it and I feel ashamed (really! )

Can you please show me how to solve this? Thank you
