#### Answer

$6x-106$

#### Work Step by Step

Without an equal sign, the given is an $\text{
expression
}.$
Using $a(b+c)=ab+ac$ or the Distributive Property and then combining like terms, the given expression, $
-7(x+4)+13(x-6)
,$ simplifies to
\begin{array}{l}\require{cancel}
-7x-28+13x-78
\\\\=
(-7x+13x)+(-28-78)
\\\\=
6x-106
.\end{array}
