    I mean, I asked you if 3 x 4 is multiplication or if it's the letter "X".

    Okay, first.. Simplify the following: \[3 * 4 - 5 (3 * 4 - 5)\] Then.. Multiply the 3 and 4 together inside the parenthese's.. \[3*4 = 12\] Leaving us with \[3*4-5 (12-5)\] Then subtract 5 from 12 inside the parenthese's.. \[12-5=7\] Leaving us with \[3*4 -5 (7)\] Know where to go from here?

    What @DIDITHEDAD said is correct, the right answer is -23.. I was just going more in depth than what they were.
