$25 \div 5 + 6 \times \left(12 - 4\right)$

$= 53$

#### Explanation:

In a calculation which has different operations, count the number of terms first. They are separated by plus and minus signs.

Within each term, the order is:

• brackets,
• powers and roots
• multiply and divide

Simplify each term to a single value and these are added and subtracted in the final step.

$\text{ "color(red)(25div5)" "color(blue)(+6xx(12-4))" } \leftarrow$ there are two terms
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\times \times} \downarrow \textcolor{w h i t e}{\times \times \times \times} \downarrow$
=" "color(red)(5)" "color(blue)(+" "6xx(8))

=" "color(red)(5)" "color(blue)(+" "48)

$= 53$
