Answer:

#150#

Explanation:

#3[6 + 4(4+7)]#

To simplify this, I'm going to use this order of operations called PEMDAS:

Following this image, we know that the first thing we have to simplify is the stuff inside a parenthesis/bracket. We also go from inside to outside, so we simplify #4+7# first:

#3[6+4(11)]#

Now multiplication:
#3[6 + 44]#

Add #6+44#:
#3[50]#

Multiply:
#150#

Hope this helps!
