Answer:

1

Explanation:

First, expand the term within the parenthesis:

#30 -: 5 -: color(red)((2 xx 3)) -> 30 -: 5 -: color(red)(6)#

Next, because these are the same operators (#-:#) we can perform the calculations left to right and continue until we have completed the simplification:

#30 -: 5 -: 6 -> color(red)((30 -: 5)) -: 6 -> color(red)(6) -: 6# -> 1#
