We have to assume that ( you might be using an old outdated computer but that's okay ) the question is
2² + 3 x ( 6 - 3 )²
Reading mathematics is a little bit different than reading English.
We discussed and you may have discussed the same lesson with your teacher or other teachers.
Math can be easy but you must follow a set of rules or instruction(s).
It looks like you have some orders of and operations.
In mathematics and computer programming, the order of operations is a collection of rules that reflect conventions about which procedures to perform first in order to evaluate a given mathematical expression.
YOU MUST FOLLOW A CERTAIN RULES OR YOU MIGHT MISCALCULATE.
The following are orders of operations.
[ ] - BRACKETS
( ) - PARENTHESIS
DIVIDE OR MULTIPLY FROM LEFT TO RIGHT
ADD OR SUBTRACT FROM LEFT TO RIGHT
THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHY SUCH OPERATIONS ARE IMPORTANT
IT HELPS CLARIFY A MATHEMATICAL STATEMENT
I AM ASSUMING THAT YOU HAVE A STRONG BACKGROUND AND HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED OR AT LEAST CAN FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH ORDERS OF OPERATIONS
IN THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT
2² + 3 x ( 6 - 3 )²
PARENTHESIS - YES
WE PERFORM THE OPERATION INSIDE PARENTHESIS
IN THIS CASE WE SUBTRACT 3 FROM 6
2² + 3 x ( 3 )²
OUR NEXT STEP POWERS OR SUPERSCRIPTS
WE SEE 2 OF THEM
2² WHICH IS 2 X 2 IS EQUALS 4
ANYTIME YOU SEE 2² OR 3² ETC IT MEANS MULTIPLICATION OF THE 2 OF SAME NUMBERS POWERS BY NUMBER ON TOP OF BASE NUMBER IN CASE THIS IS 2
IT MEANS MULTIPLY THE NUMBER AS MANY TIMES INDICATED
IF YOU HAD 2³ IT WOULD MEAN 2x2x2
4 + 3 x ( 3 )²
We have powers again (3)² or 3x3
4 + 3 x 9
NEXT WE DIVIDE OR MULTIPLY FROM LEFT TO RIGHT ( WE NO LONGER SEE PARENTHESIS OR POWERS )
4 + 27
NEXT WE ADD OR SUBTRACT FROM LEFT TO RIGHT
POINT IS AFTER FOLLOWING THE RULES OR OPERATIONS ORDERS
YOU END UP WITH THE NUMBER 31
THOSE WERE SOME POWERS
THAT WAS ONE MAGICAL FULL OF POWERS MATHEMATICAL STATEMENT
THIS VIDEO MIGHT HELP YOU
Glad I could help
