Answer:

See the entire simplification process below:

Explanation:

First, because there are no Parenthesis or Exponents (PE), we will handle the Multiplication and Division (MD):

#15 - color(red)(35/7) * 2 + 3 * 4 ->#

#15 - color(red)(5 * 2) + color(red)(3 * 4) ->#

#15 - 10 + 12#

Then, handle the Addition and Subtraction (AS) from left to right:

#color(red)(15 - 10) + 12 ->#

#5 + 12 ->#

#17#
