Answer:

#29#

Explanation:

There are two terms. Simplify each term to a single answer and then add or subtract the answers in the final step.

Multiplication has to be done before addition or subtraction.

#" "color(blue)(17)+color(magenta)(3xx4)#

#=color(blue)(17)+color(magenta)(12)#

#=29#

Only if there were brackets enclosing #17+3# would it be done first.

#(17+3)xx4#

#=20xx4#

#=80#
