what you need to use the distributive property... or distribute the negative throughout the parenthesis

- times k= -k - times -12= positive 12

-11+k-k+12

Now you need to combine like terms...

-11+12+k-k

The k's cancel out so you are left with -11+12, this equals to 1. 1 is your answer

hope this helped :)

It would be, without parenthesis:

-11 + k - k + 12

because subtracting a negative is like adding a positive. So combine your like terms.

-11 + 12 = 1

k - k = 0

It would be 1
