3 · {(300 - 80 ÷ 5) - [3 · 25 - (8 - 2 · 3)]}

$$\\=3 \times \{(300 - 80 \div 5) - [3 \times 25 - (8 - 2 \times 3)]\}\\\\ Do the stuff in the brackets, and use PEDMAS \\ Multiplication and division is done before addition and subtraction\\\\ =3 \times \{(300 - 16) - [3 \times 25 - (8 - 6)]\}\\\\ =3 \times \{(284) - [3 \times 25 - (2)]\}\\\\ =3 \times \{284 - [3 \times 25 - 2]\}\\\\ =3 \times \{284 - [75 - 2]\}\\\\ =3 \times \{284 - \}\\\\ =3 \times \{284 - 73\}\\\\ =3 \times \{211\}\\\\ =3 \times 211\\\\ =633$$
