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

For the 6-2b 


you have to subtract it from the boxed equation 

a-(6-2b)=2b-3-(6-2b)

a-6+2b=2b-3-6+2b

a-6+6=2b+2b-2b-3

a=2b-3

a-2b=3


This is the solution. 


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