Answer:

#2#

Explanation:

As per the question, we have

#1 - 7 - (2 xx 2) + 6 xx 2#

#:.# According to BODMAS ( B rackets of D ivision M ultiplication A ddition S ubtraction) also known as PEMDAS,

#1 - 7 - 4 + 6 xx 2#

#= 1 - 7 - 4 + 12#

#= 1 - 7 + 8#

#= 1 + 1#

#= 2#

Therefore, simplification of this problem according to BODMAS (PEMDAS)gives us the answer #2#.
