    To simplify the expression (2x + 3y) – (4x – 2y), we need to distribute the negative sign to the terms inside the parentheses. Here are the steps to simplify it:

    Step 1: Distribute the negative sign to the terms inside the second set of parentheses:

    (2x + 3y) – 4x + 2y.

    Step 2: Combine like terms. In this case, we can combine the x terms and the y terms separately:

    2x – 4x + 3y + 2y.

    Step 3: Simplify the x terms by combining the coefficients:

    (2 – 4)x + 3y + 2y.

    Step 4: Simplify the y terms by combining the coefficients:

    -2x + 5y.

    Therefore, the simplified expression for (2x + 3y) – (4x – 2y) is -2x + 5y.
