Jun 18, 2018

$- 65$

#### Explanation:

$- 5 \left[7 - 2 \left(- 3\right)\right]$

To simplify/solve this, we use PEMDAS, which is the order of operations (shown below):

Following this image, we have to solve the expression in the parenthesis/bracket first:
$\left[7 - 2 \left(- 3\right)\right]$

Now we do multiplication :
$\left[7 + 6\right]$

$\left[13\right]$
$- 5 \left[13\right]$
$- 65$
