$= 20$

#### Explanation:

When answering, first you need to make the expression as easy as possible. You need to get rid of all the brackets.

Then, you do any multiplication or division. Lastly, you do the subtraction and addition.

$4 - 6 = - 2$

and

$2 \cdot \left(- 3\right) \left(- 2\right) = 12$
