2.911

#### Explanation:

The first step to solve this problem, is to look at one certain part of the equation. To start, we are going to look at

$\textcolor{b l u e}{2.75 + .003} + .158$

So, if you break that small chunk off, and pretend that for now, the .158 isn't even there, you are left with $2.75 + .003$. Solve this using addition, and you get $\textcolor{red}{2.753}$.

Now, we are going to add back in the .158.

$\textcolor{red}{2.753} + .158$

After solving the problem above using addition, you result in $2.911$, which is your final answer.
