Nov 7, 2016

$4 {x}^{2} - 26 x - 32$

#### Explanation:

Step 1) Expand the terms in parenthesis by multiplying:

$- 4 x \left(- x\right) - 4 x \left(6\right) - 4 \left(6 x\right) - 4 \left(8\right) \implies$

$4 {x}^{2} - 24 x - 2 x - 32$

Step 2) Combine like terms:

$4 {x}^{2} - \left(24 + 2\right) x - 32 \implies$

$4 {x}^{2} - 26 x - 32$
