Remember that this isn't called an "equation" since we are not given an equal sign.

This is called an "expression."

(-3 + 2 × (7 - -5) ) × ( -8 - 2 × (-6 + 3) )     First, do the addition inside the innermost parenthesees.

7 - -5  =  7 + 5  =  12     and     -6 + 3  =  -3

=  (-3 + 2 × 12 ) × ( -8 - 2 × -3 )

=  (-3 + 2 × 12 ) × ( -8 - 2 × -3 )         Next, we must work inside the remaining parenthesees.

=  (-3 + 24 ) × ( -8 - -6 )

=  (-3 + 24 ) × ( -8 - -6 )      Now do the addition inside of the remaining parenthesees.

-3 + 24  =  24 - 3  =  21     and     -8 - -6  =  -8 + 6  =  -2

=  21 × -2

Finally, multiply these together.

=  -42

what do you mean by "equations"?

P.S. Im a middle schooler (7th grade) and this problem is pretty easy to solve for me (no offence)
