What is the largest number you can form from the numbers 2,5,8,9,10 and the operations $$\times,+,+,-$$, and exactly one pair of parentheses? For example, you can form $$2 \times 5 + (9 - 8 +10) = 21$$, $$(2 \times 5 +9) - 10 + 8 = 17$$, etc.

$$\text{I assume nothing can be repeated}\\ \text{Without spending too much time on it my initial guess would be}\\ 10 \times (9+8+5-2) = 200$$
