Anyone who knows Organic Chemistry? Can you help me with one reaction mechanism?

So I've probably just been studying too long but I promised myself if I got through question 7 I could stop and take a break and finish studying tomorrow. Unfortunately I just can't figure out the mechanism for question 7 and it is driving me nuts. I feel like it should be obvious but apparently it isn't.
How do I make this...
C = C - C - C
C - C - C - C
Ok, I see in the preview that it isn't obeying my spacing and I don't know how to make it to that so I'll just explain.
The top carbon should be able the third carbon in the chain. The chlorine should be under the second carbon and the bromine should be under the third carbon.
Thank you in advance!!!
