I need help figuring out this problem

When doing these and other problems always remember this acronym Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally

P-parenthesis

E-exponents

M-multiplicaton

D-division

A-addition

S-subtration

This acronmy will help you in determining which part of the equation you should do first. Looking at the equation you see there are two parentheses, in the parenthesis you see exponents. Solve the exponents and any other math in the parenthesis first and then move to the next parenthesis. Once those are done then add the two.
