    brackets expansion

    8x-6(2x+4)+10
    -----------------
    8

    = 8x- 12x-24+10
    -------------------
    8

    = -4x - 11

    that right?

    How did you get that?
    8x-6(2x+4)+10
    -----------------
    8

    8x -12x -24 +10
    ...........8

    -4x -14
    .......8

    -(4x/8) - (14/8)
    -(x/2) - (7/4)
