Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(12 \div 3 \times [8+(4)^26]+2\) Start with the innermost parentheses: \(= 12 \div 3 \times [8+\color{red}{(4)^2}6]+2\) \(= 12 \div 3 \times [8+\color{red}{16}6]+2\) The brackets now become parentheses, so work inside the parentheses. \(= 12 \div 3 \times \color{green}{(8+166)}+2\) Inside the parentheses, do additions and subtractions in the order they appear from left to right. \(= 12 \div 3 \times \color{green}{(8+166)}+2\) \(= 12 \div 3 \times \color{green}{(86)}+2\) \(= 12 \div 3 \times \color{green}{2}+2\) Now work on multiplications and divisions in the order they appear from left to right. \(= \color{blue}{12 \div 3 \times 2}+2\) \(= \color{blue}{4 \times 2}+2\) \(= \color{blue}{8}+2\) \(= 8+2\) Finally, there is only one addition left to do. \(=  6\)
