Answer:

See below

Explanation:

First, we're going to solve for the two parentheses. #2+3=5# and #3+1=4#, so we're going to get #5^2+4^2#.

Next, we're going to solve for the exponents. #5^2=25# and #4^2=16#, so we're going to get #25+16#.

From here, just add the two number together to get our answer, #41#.
