Apr 19, 2018

$\left(4 \times 2\right) + \left(4 \times 6\right)$

#### Explanation:

$\text{multiply each of the terms in the parenthesis by } 4$

$\Rightarrow \textcolor{red}{4} \times \left(2 + 6\right) = \textcolor{red}{4} \left(2 + 6\right)$

=(color(red)(4)xx2)+(color(red)(4)xx6))

$= 8 + 24$

$= 32$
