What are you supposed to do with the posted expression? (I couldn't locate any instructions in your post.) Thank you.

if what you are looking for is to simplify the statement then

3(x-2) + 2 + 2(4-4)

3x - 6 + 2 + 0

3x - 4

or if the above statement was solve for x (assume the original statement equals zero)

then
0 = 3x-4
4 = 3x

4/3 = x

cheers.........
