This question relates to:

And establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night. Indeed, good deeds do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember.
Qur'an 11:114

I'm wondering if this means:

  1. good deeds and bad deeds cancel out, i.e., the reward for a good deed is lost if it is used to "do away with misdeeds", or

  2. in addition to good deeds "doing away with misdeeds", they are rewarded (with the reward equal to if no bad deeds were committed).

Question: Does "good deeds do away with misdeeds" imply that good and bad deeds cancel out, or that there is still a reward for good deeds?

(Also related is ...a good deed will have ten times the like thereof ... an evil deed will not be recompensed except the like thereof... Qur'an 6:160.)

And establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night. Indeed, good deeds do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember.

it is mean that good deeds do away with misdeeds and they are rewarded for the good deeds

وقال الإمام أحمد : حدثنا يونس وعفان قالا حدثنا حماد - يعني : ابن سلمة - عن علي بن زيد - قال عفان : أنبأنا علي بن زيد ، عن يوسف بن مهران ، عن ابن عباس; أن رجلا أتى عمر قال : امرأة جاءت تبايعه ، فأدخلتها الدولج ، فأصبت منها ما دون الجماع ، فقال : ويحك . لعلها مغيبة في سبيل الله ؟ قال : أجل . قال : فأت أبا بكر فاسأله قال : فأتاه فسأله ، فقال : لعلها مغيبة في سبيل الله ؟ فقال مثل قول عمر ، ثم أتى النبي - صلى الله عليه وسلم - فقال له مثل ذلك ، قال : " فلعلها مغيبة في سبيل الله " . ونزل القرآن : ( وأقم الصلاة طرفي النهار وزلفا من الليل إن الحسنات يذهبن السيئات ) إلى آخر الآية ، فقال : يا رسول الله ، ألي خاصة أم للناس عامة ؟ فضرب - يعني : عمر - صدره بيده وقال : لا ولا نعمة عين ، بل للناس عامة . فقال رسول الله ، صلى الله عليه وسلم : " صدق عمر " .

and the second a good deed will have ten times the like thereof ... an evil deed will not be recompensed except the like thereof.

it is about writing the goods deeds and the bad deeds when you do a good deed it written as 10 and doing away with misdeeds and when you do a bad deed it just written as 1 bad deed
