Answer:

34

Explanation:

Apply the BIDMAS rule and first work out the brackets.

(The BIDMAS rule being: B rackets, I ndicies, D ivision,
M ultiplication, A ddition, S ubtraction)

#(0.24xx5)=1.2#
#(0.66xx5)=3.3#

It then becomes:

#36-9-:[1.2+3.3]#
#36-9-:4.5#

Apply the BIDMAS rule and do the division next and then the subtraction last.

#9-:4.5=2#
#36-2=34#
