You just multiply all of the numbers inside the parenthesis, by the number outside, so you end up with:

1. 4(3+5) = 4*3+4*5 = 12+20 = 32
2. 2(6+10) = 2*6+2*10 = 12+20 = 32
3. 5(7-4) = 5*7-5*4 = 35 - 20 = 15
4. (6-2)8 = 6*8-2*8 = 48 - 16 = 32

    Simple.
    1. 4(3+5) = (4x3) + (4x5) = 12+20= 32
    2. 2(6+10) = (2x6) + (2x10)= 12+20=32
    3. 5(7-4)= (5x7)-(5x4)= 35-20=15
    4. (6-2)8= (6x8)-(2x8)= 48-16= 32
