all you have to do is distribute the 6 when ever you have 6(x-2) or 6(blah) all you have to do is multiply that number by each individual term within those brackets and make sure you keep the signs

so in the case of 6(x-2) you multiply 6 by x and 6 by -2 and you'll get 6x - 12 which equals the term on the right
