Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

First, evaluate the term within the Parenthesis first:

#color(red)(0.5 + 4.8) xx 5.78 - 5.367/0.367 + 13 x 0 =>#

#5.3 xx 5.78 - 5.367/0.367 + 13 x 0 =>#

Next, execute the two Multiplications and one Division operation left to right:

#color(red)(5.3 xx 5.78) - 5.367/0.367 + 13 x 0 =>#

#30.634 - 5.367/0.367 + 13 x 0 =>#

#30.634 - color(red)(5.367/0.367) + 13 x 0 =>#

#30.634 - 14.624 + 13 x 0 =>#

#30.634 - 14.624 + color(red)(13 x 0) =>#

#30.634 - 14.624 + 0#

Now, execute the Subtraction and Addition operations left to right:

#color(red)(30.634 - 14.624) + 0 =>#

#16.010 + 0 =>#

#color(red)(16.010 + 0) =>#

#16.010# rounded to the nearest thousandth
