83

#### Explanation:

Due to the PEMDAS rule, brackets will have to go first.

If a number has already been given after solving a problem that was in brackets, a multiplication sign should be there before the answer. So it will be this:

There aren't any exponents, but there is multiplication, so it'll go next.

So it will be this:

Finally, we will have to do addition.

So the final answer is 83. Hope this helped!
