Use rules

#### Explanation:

The rules to simplify such math expressions are

1. Solve the parenthesis / bracketed parts first.
2. Power, log kind of operations next.
3. Multiply or divide next.
4. Additions and subtractions at last.

So

$= 2 \setminus \times \left(3 - 5\right) + 6$
$= 2 \setminus \times \left(- 2\right) + 6$
$= - 4 + 6$
$= 2$
