\([-2-((-4)^2-2)]*(-4-(-3))\)

 \([-2-((-4)^2-2)]*(-4-(-3))\) This is the original expression. First, evaluate parentheses from left to right. Of course, you have to order of operations within a set of parentheses. Do \((-4)^2=-4*-4=16\) \([-2-(16-2)]*(-4-(-3))\) Do \(16-2\) because those are the innermost parentheseses. \([-2-14]*(-4-(-3))\) Do \(-2-14\) because you evaluate parentheses from left to right! \(-16*(-4-(-3))\) Now, evaluate \(-4-(-3)=-4+3=-1\). \(-16*-1\) Evaluate -16*-1. \(16\) This is your answer
