Yeah but the answer doesn't come out right for me. This is how I've done it 5+9 = 14 = 7+3 * [8+8 * 14] then I do 8+8 = 16 7+3 * [16 *14] then 16*14 = 224 7 + 3 * 224 and then i get stuck?! Can someone explain a little how they do it?

Nope... do 8 times 14 after 5+9... PEMDAS within each set of parenthesis
