See the entire solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, expand the terms within parenthesis. Be careful to handle the signs of the individual terms correctly:

$- 3 x + 2 + 4 x$

Next, group like terms:

$4 x - 3 x + 2$

Now, combine like terms:

$\left(4 - 3\right) x + 2$

$1 x + 2$

$x + 2$
