    For the numbers in parentheses, or numbers next to each other, you multiply them both. (−7)(8) − (4)(−2), =−56 − (4)(−2), =−56 − (−8), What do you think the answer is?

    Then just do normal subtraction, also negatives cancel out subtraction signs. So its adding the (-8) as normal 8.

    So we have now, -56 + 8, Positives added to negatives make the negative number go down normally.

    -56 + 8, Using the information we gave you, the answer should be 8 down from -56, Making the solution, -48 I hope this helped!
