Answer:

#0#

Explanation:

Following PEMDAS, you start off with parenthesis.

#(83+17)=100#

Now you have #100xx5-(83+17xx5)#

You still have to solve for the other parenthesis, so

#(83+17xx5)= 500#

Now you have #100xx5-500#

There are no exponents, so now move on to multiplication

#100xx5=500#

Now solve for the rest

#500-500=0#
