Lani, you need to go to your teacher for help and/or find a tutor. We can't do all of your hw for you.
 
3x - 4 = -3
3x - 4 + 4 = -3 + 4
3x = 1
3x/3 = 1/3
x = 1/3
 
You are already given that 3x - 4 = -3, so (-3)= 9. Since x = 1/3...
 
9 + 6(1/3) - 8 = 9 + 2 - 8 = 3

Given:  3x-4 = -3
That means:  6x-8 = -6
 
So, (-3)2-6 = 9-6 = 3                   [note: not all problems will have such easy substitution]

First, solve for x in
 
3x - 4 = -3.
 
(Can you do that?)
 
Then substitute the result into
 
(3x - 4)2 + 6x - 8,
 
and you will have your answer.
