Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

the simplified expression is

3y^2 - 2y

take the common term y from each term

y(3y-2)

we cannot simplify this answer further

3y^2 - 2y


it is because we cannot simplify expression with different powers 

each term is having different powers of y

the first term is having y with power 2 and second term is having y with power 1



Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.....thank you
