Answer:

See the step by step calculation below

Explanation:

First handle the two terms in parenthesis:

#3(color(red)(3 - 1))^5 + (color(blue)(1/2))^2 = #

#3(color(red)(2))^5 + (color(blue)(1/2 xx 1/2)) = #

#3(color(red)(2 xx 2 xx 2 xx 2 xx 2)) + color(blue)(1/4) = #

#(3 xx color(red)(32)) + color(blue)(1/4) = #

#96 + 1/4 = #

#96 + 0.25 =#

#96.25#
