Answer:

ANSWER=58

Explanation:

P- parenthesis

E-exponents

M/D - multiplication / division (from left to right)

A/S - addition / subtraction (from left to right)

In any mathematical expression, the above order must be followed.

Given that,

#7+14-3+5xx2^3#

Let
#x=7+14-3+5xx2^3#

(1). There is no parenthesis in above expression.

(2).There is an exponent term in above expression.

#x=7+14-3+5xx8# [since #2^3=8#]

(3).There is a multiplication symbol in between 5 and 8.

#x=7+14-3+40#

(4)Reduce above expression to single number by adding and subtracting from left to right.

#x=21-3+40#

#x=18+40#

#x=58#
