I'm going to assume this is

$\displaystyle \frac{4 - (-3) + 1}{2 - \frac{2}{-2}}$

because my only other guess is mathematically impossible.

$\displaystyle \frac{4 - (-3) + 1}{2 - \frac{2}{-2}}$

$\displaystyle = \frac{4 - (-3) + 1}{2 - (-1)}$

$\displaystyle = \frac{4 + 3 + 1}{2 + 1}$

$\displaystyle = \frac{8}{3}$
