x(2x squared-x-3)+ 1(2x squared-x-3)

x.2x squared+x.x+x.3+2x squared-x-3

2x cube+x squared+3x+2x squared-x-3

5x squared-2x squared-3x

Your notation is extremely awkward. We normally write x to a power as

x^power like x^3 is x cubed

Now I will do it your way but you have errors starting with the sign in the first line

x(2x squared-x-3)+ 1(2x squared-x-3)

should be

x(2x squared-x-3) - 1(2x squared-x-3)

then

x*2xsquared -x*x -3x -2xsquared +x+3

or

2 x cubed - 3 x squared -2 x +3
