#### Explanation:

Rather thanblindly following PEDMAS, BODMAS or whatever form you know .... work with TERMS.

Do Brackets first, then from strongest to weakest operations

There are 2 terms. Work out each separately.

Inside the bracket there are 2 terms. Work out each separately.

Note that the -2 term was in its simplest form and was not used at all until the last line.
