With just an expression like 4(u-2)-6, 4(u-2)-6u, or 4(u-2)6u, there's nothing to solve for because it's not equal to anything. But what you can do is simplify the expression. So I'll focus on simplifying. To simplify, you want to combine like terms, which in this case would be the U's.

Step 1: Multiply 4 by (u-2). That would give you ____u - ____

Step 2: Subtract 6u, which gives you ____u - _____

Now if your problem were actually 4(u-2)6u, step 1 from above would remain the same. The only difference would be changing step 2. Instead of subtracting 6u, you'd multiply by 6u.

Check carefully to see it the question should be

4 (u - 2) - 6u

If this is the correct expression, here is the way to simplify it.

1) Clear the parentheses by distributing the 4

After you have distributed, you will have this

4u - 8 - 6u

2) Combine like terms

After you have combined 4u with - 6u, you will have this:

- 2u - 8 <-- answer

The expression has been simplified as much as possible.

It is not an equation because there is no equal sign, so it cannot be "solved"
