4 + (6-2)

This expression is about adding two terms:  One term is 4 and the other term is (6-2). 

To evaluate this expression, first you have to calculate  the term in parenthesis.  So 6-2 gives you 4.  So the expression now becomes 4+ 4.  This is a simple addition.  So 4+4 gives you 8.  This is your answer.

Please note that when an expression contains a number of different signs , then you follow this order for calculation:  parenthesis first, then multiplication, division, addition and subtraction.

Answer: 8
