2x squared+4x-2

i know its kinda confusing becasue i type sqaured so many time, am i on the right track?how do i find the answer now? i'm so confused :(

    You are OK as far as you went.

    3x^2 -10 +4x +8 -x^2 = 2x^2 +4x -2
    = 2(x^2 +2x -1)
    That cannot be factored easily, so it is as simplified as it is going to get.
