    do 2+2 first and then it would look like this 42-4 x 4 then do multiplication and it would look like this 42-16 then subtract and it would look like this 26 and thats your answer

    PEMDAS. Always do parentheses first, exponents second, multiplication third, division fourth, adding fifth, and subtraction last. With that, you have your problem: 42-4x(2+2) -Add. 42-4x(4) - Multiply. 42-16 - Now subtract. 26 is now your answer. Hope I helped! Any questions?
