$100$

#### Explanation:

To evaluate an expression with $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{mixed operations}}$ there is a particular order that must be followed.

Follow the order as set in the acronym PEMDAS [ Parenthesis(brackets), Exponents(powers), Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction ]

$\Rightarrow 12 \times {2}^{3} + 4$

$= 12 \times 8 + 4 \leftarrow \text{ Exponent}$

$= 96 + 4 \leftarrow \text{ Multiplication}$

$= 100 \leftarrow \text{ Addition}$
