Hello there! We must use disk utility to delete the partition below is a how to

Open disk utility from/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility,
Select the first hard drive icon in the list ( on the left hand side of the window should say your hard drives size then hitachi or samsung as the name)
select the Partition tab, click the – button to remove it, and increase the size of your Mac partition afterwards
