Answer

To solve this we will need to start by first solving the items that have been enclosed by the brackets. 5*10 = 50 after this we will have to rewrite the entire problem as 7+ 50 =57

Work Step by Step

According to the order of operations (PEMDAS), what is in the parenthesis is done before addition: 7 + (5 x 10) After multiplying 5 and 10 you get a product of 50 = 7 + 50 Next, add 7 and 50 = 57 Then, 7 + 50 = 57.
