One dozen = 12
Two dozen = 24


The numerical expression for #2# dozen eggs would be #24# eggs.
Because you already know that there are #2# dozen eggs then you don't need a variable expression, as that is only needed if you don't know how many eggs you have. A variable expression would be used if the question was d dozen eggs.

d dozen eggs would equal to #12d# as a variable expression because #d# is the unknown.
