How do you evaluate the following in parenthesis? 3 (( 2+4)-5)

Evaluating inside of parentheses is quite simple, actually. Just remember that if you have multiple operations within a set of parentheses, abide the rules of the order of operations inside of those parentheses.

 

I'll evaluate your given expression to demonstrate this:
 

\(3 (( 2+4)-5)\) Good! You have identified the set of parentheses from left to right. However, there is an inner set of parentheses. Do that first! Why? 
\(3(6-5)\) Yet again, do 6-5 because it is prioritized by the parentheses.
\(3(1)\) 3(1)=3*1. Evaluate this.
\(3\)
