$158$
We start with the expression: $2[(5\times6)+7^{2}$] Order of operations states that we must work with the innermost parenthesis first: $2(30+7^{2})$ Now Order of Operations states that the exponents should be multiplied: $2(30+49)$ Now addition can take place inside the parentheses: $2(79)$ Lastly multiplication between the two quatities occurs: $158$
