#### Explanation:

$A = 13 + \left(3 \cdot {\left(5 + 3\right)}^{2}\right)$

First, calculates what is there inside the parenthesis.

$A = 13 + \left(3 \cdot {\left(\textcolor{red}{8}\right)}^{2}\right)$

After, apply the power $2$

$A = 13 + \left(3 \cdot \textcolor{b l u e}{64}\right)$

Again, calculates what is there inside the parenthesis.

$A = 13 + \left(\textcolor{red}{192}\right)$

$A = 205$
