    I'm going to assume this is
    $\displaystyle \frac{4 - (-3) + 1}{2 - \frac{2}{-2}}$
    because my only other guess is mathematically impossible.

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

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

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

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