#### Explanation:

You start by adding the brackets, which gives you $\left(4 - 1\right) \left(\left(1 + 6\right) + 2\right) = \left(3\right) \left(7 + 2\right)$ Then, you add 7 and 2 and then multiply by 3.

#### Explanation:

First, you would need to solve all the things put in brackets:

$\left(4 - 1\right) \left[\left(1 + 6\right) + 2\right]$
As i said, solve the brackets:
$= \left(3\right) \left[\left(7\right) + 2\right]$
And then, you solve the inside bracket first, then the outside:
$= \left(3\right) \left[7 + 2\right]$
$= \left(3\right) \left[9\right]$
$= 27$
