Still adding instead of multiplying....

Please look at your scratch paper: Do you have parentheses around the 'six plus four', like this:

(6 + 4)

And do you have the three just to the left of the parentheses with no operation sign in between, like this:

3(6 + 4)

After completing the operation inside the parentheses, multiply by the quantity outside:

3(6 + 4)

3(10)

3 * 10

Please copy and solve this problem:

7 + 3(4 + 2) =
