Answer:

#(6+32)(4-2) = color(green)(76#

Explanation:

To reduce an expression to its simplest form, we need to follow the order of operations.

The Order of Operations is Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction (PEMDAS)

So in the expression #(6+32)(4-2)#, we solve the parentheses first

#(6 + 32) = 38# and #(4-2) = 2#

We get #38 times 2 = 76#
