Here you go:
x[x(x+8)3(x+8)]
x[x^2 + 8x  3x 24]
x[x^2 + 5x 24]
x^3 + 5x^2  24x

Dazzla16
Note: x^2 means 'x to the power of 2'

Yes. It means "X squared". Likewise, x^3 means x cubed

Just think of BIMDAS any time you get into this kind of situation
You do you brackets first followed by indices, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction. If you even are doing the sum in the right order and the examener knows that you understand the method you will still receive marks ☺️
