$-4x+7$
The distributive property allows us to distribute anything multiplied by something inside of the parenthesis to whatever is inside of the parenthesis. Thus, we distribute the -2 and -1 to everything inside the parenthesis, giving us the expression $-6x+8+2x-1$. We now combine like terms to simplify the expression to: $-4x+7$.
