Reorder the terms: (2 + x)(x + -4)(x + 2)

Reorder the terms: (2 + x)(-4 + x)(x + 2)

Reorder the terms: (2 + x)(-4 + x)(2 + x)

Multiply (2 + x) * (-4 + x)

(2(-4 + x) + x(-4 + x))(2 + x)

((-4 * 2 + x * 2) + x(-4 + x))(2 + x)

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

(-8 + 2x + (-4 * x + x * x))(2 + x)

(-8 + 2x + (-4x + x2))(2 + x)

Combine like terms: 2x + -4x = -2x

(-8 + -2x + x2)(2 + x)

Multiply (-8 + -2x + x2) * (2 + x)

(-8(2 + x) + -2x * (2 + x) + x2(2 + x))

((2 * -8 + x * -8) + -2x * (2 + x) + x2(2 + x))

((-16 + -8x) + -2x * (2 + x) + x2(2 + x))

(-16 + -8x + (2 * -2x + x * -2x) + x2(2 + x))

(-16 + -8x + (-4x + -2x2) + x2(2 + x))

(-16 + -8x + -4x + -2x2 + (2 * x2 + x * x2))

(-16 + -8x + -4x + -2x2 + (2x2 + x3))

Combine like terms: -8x + -4x = -12x

(-16 + -12x + -2x2 + 2x2 + x3)

Combine like terms: -2x2 + 2x2 = 0

(-16 + -12x + 0 + x3)

(-16 + -12x + x3)

Lol.
