$- 5800$

#### Explanation:

Multiply or divide has priority over add subtract but you must take into consideration the grouping by brackets.

$\left[58 \times \left(- 34\right)\right] - \left[58 \times 65\right] - 58$

$- 1972 - 3770 - 58 = - 5800$

'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Another way of calculating:

Notice that 58 is a common factor

write as: $\left[58 \times \left(- 34\right)\right] - \left[58 \times 65\right] - \left[58 \times 1\right]$

$58 \left(- 34 - 65 - 1\right) = 58 \times \left(- 100\right) = - 5800$
