    To simplify the expression 3y – 4(y + 2) + 7y, we’ll follow the order of operations (PEMDAS/BODMAS) and combine like terms:

    First, let’s distribute the -4 to the terms inside the parentheses:
    3y – 4y – 4(2) + 7y

    Simplifying further:
    3y – 4y – 8 + 7y

    Now, let’s combine like terms:
    (3y + 7y) – 4y – 8

    Adding the y-terms:
    10y – 4y – 8

    Combining like terms again:
    (10y – 4y) – 8

    Simplifying:
    6y – 8

    So, the simplified expression is 6y – 8.
