Problem: Provide an efficient multistep synthesis for the following conversion of the given starting material into product. For each functional group transformation, give all necessary reagents and catalysts, and give a structural formula of the organic product. Show stereochemistry appropriately when necessary. If a mixture of products must be present after a step, assume that you can separate the mixture and take the one needed product forward through the next step.
