Is this the right answer? 42+x-3(x-2)+11
42+8-3(8-2)+11
47×6+11
282+11
293

• math -

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

• math -

No x is 8

• math -

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
