$211$

#### Explanation:

In expressions which involve different operations, always count the number of TERMS first. They are separated by $+ \mathmr{and} -$ signs.

Each term simplifies to a single answer and these are added or subtracted in the final step.

Within each term, the order is:

• brackets
• powers and roots
• multiply and divide

$\text{ "color(blue)(65)" "color(red)(+60xx6div3)" } \textcolor{g r e e n}{- \left(13 - 39\right)} \leftarrow$ there are $3$ terms
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\times \times \times \times x} \downarrow \textcolor{w h i t e}{\times \times \times \times} \downarrow$
$= \textcolor{b l u e}{65} \text{ "color(red)(+360div3)" } \textcolor{g r e e n}{- \left(- 26\right)}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\times \times \times \times x} \downarrow \textcolor{w h i t e}{\times \times \times} \downarrow$
=color(blue)(65)" "color(red)(" "+120)" "color(green)(+" "26)

$= 185 + 26$

$= 211$
