# Question #f220a

See explanation. If what you meant was different to how I interpreted it, edit the question and let me know.

#### Explanation:

To do maths formatting open and close with the hash symbol
So if I write hash 2x xx 3 hash I get: $2 x \times 3$. Also look at
https://socratic.org/help/symbols

Assumption: you meant $\left(2 \times 2 - 11 x\right) + \left(4 \times 2 - 4\right)$

In this case it is

$\left(4 - 11 x\right) + \left(8 - 4\right)$

$4 - 11 x + 4$

$4 + 4 - 11 x$

$8 - 11 x$
