it is in second and third term

#### Explanation:

so once we put the bracket in the second and third term we will be able to solve the equation which will result in the fraction we require

$\frac{1}{2} + \left(\frac{\frac{2}{3} - \frac{1}{4.} \left(\frac{2}{5}\right)}{\frac{1}{6}}\right) = \frac{39}{10}$
