Answer:

#2(3-5)^3 + 4(-4 +7) = -4#

Explanation:

Order of operations (PEMDAS: parentheses, exponents, multiplication/division, addition/subtraction) requires parentheses to be completed first:

#2(3-5)^3 + 4(-4 +7) #
#= 2(-2)^3 + 4(3)#

Next evaluate the exponent:

#= 2(-8) + 4(3)#

Next complete the multiplication:

#= -16 + 12#

Finally do the addition:

#2(3-5)^3 + 4(-4 +7) = -4#
