$3h^{3} + 7h^{2} - 5h - 14$
To simplify the polynomial we apply the distributive property that states: a(b+c)=ab+ac = $h(3h^{2}+h-7) + 2(3h^{2}+h-7)$ = ($h \times 3h^{2}$) + ($h\times h$) + ($h\times -7$) + ($2 \times 3h^{2}$) + ($2\times h$) + ($2 \times -7$) = $3h^{3} + h^{2} - 7h + 6h^{2} + 2h - 14$ = $3h^{3} + h^{2} + 6h^{2} + 2h - 7h - 14$ = $3h^{3} + 7h^{2} - 5h - 14$ We add like terms to get final answer
