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. \(3\)

Inner ones first.
