Answer:

#-4-m#

Explanation:

The #-# is really #-1# but no one writes out the #1# because it's useless.
The only thing you really need to do in this problem is distribute the #-1# to each of the variables in the parenthesis

For this problem you have to multiply the #-1# to the #4# and #m#
#-1(4+m)# becomes #-4-m#
