Is this the right answer? 42+x-3(x-2)+11

42+8-3(8-2)+11

47×6+11

282+11

293

No.

As I understand your problem, x is an unknown.

42+x-3(x-2)+11

42 + x - 3x + 6 + 11

42 + 17 - 2x

59 - 2x

In that case, things are still a bit off:

42+8-3(8-2)+11

42+8-3(6)+11

42+8-18+11

50-18+11

32+11

43

multiplication comes before addition
