Answer:

740

Explanation:

Using PEMDAS, we first look at the parentheses. There is another pair of parentheses inside the first one, so we solve the inner one first.
#20 + (20*6^2)#
Now in the first pair of parentheses we look for any exponents, then solve it.
#20 + (20*36)#
After exponents we look for multiplication or division.
#20+ (720)#
The parentheses are fully solved so now we look for any exponents, multiplication, and division. There is none. So we look for addition and subtraction and then solve.
#740#
