#### Explanation:

Following PEMDAS, you start off with parenthesis.

$\left(83 + 17\right) = 100$

Now you have $100 \times 5 - \left(83 + 17 \times 5\right)$

You still have to solve for the other parenthesis, so

$\left(83 + 17 \times 5\right) = 500$

Now you have $100 \times 5 - 500$

There are no exponents, so now move on to multiplication

$100 \times 5 = 500$

Now solve for the rest

$500 - 500 = 0$
