You're going to do a sc decrease, sc sc sc sc, sc decrease, sc sc sc sc. When there are (and) followed by a number, you're going to do what's in the () that number of times.

You have 36 stitches in sc so first you do a sc decrease (over 2 scs) then sc in next 4 scs, then do another sc decrease(over 2 sc), then 4 scs, then sc decrease, then 3 scs, sc decrease then 3 scs
etc
You do your sc decrease over two scs.
