$2 {x}^{2} y + 3 x - 8 x y - 12$

#### Explanation:

The product is written (2xy + 3 )(x - 4)

To expand the brackets, each term in the 2nd bracket is multiplied by each term in the 1st bracket.

That is $\textcolor{red}{2 x y} \left(x - 4\right) + \textcolor{red}{3} \left(x - 4\right)$

$\Rightarrow 2 {x}^{2} y - 8 x y + 3 x - 12 \text{ is the product}$
