Hi Faith,
 
 
step 1: remove the parenthesis. 
 
so the expression would become 12y + 4x + 15y +2
 
step 2: combine the like terms.
 
this means you can add 12y and 15y.
 
so now you get:  17y + 4x + 2
 
 
 
regards,
Fatima K.

Just noticed that in the first line you have " -2 "
 
So in that case the whole expression would remain the same except the positive 2 would become a negative 2. 
 
so your answer would be 17y + 4x - 2
 
( I am not sure which one is the question you need answer for, hence, I have provided for both)
 
Hope it helps!
 
sorry typing error! its going to be 27y
