Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
First multiply -7 and b which is -7b (the lack of an operation between 7 and b means multiplication) and then multiply -7 and -y which is 7y. Put the two answers together which is -7b + 7y. They add because the last answer 7y is a positive number.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
