Order of operations follow the PEMDAS rule. First Priority: P -Parentheses Second Priority: E - exponents Third Priority: M/D - Multiplication or division, whichever comes first from the left Fourth Priority: A/S - Addition or subtraction, whichever comes first from the left Simplify within the parentheses to obtain: $=5 + 3(-5)^2 \div 3 \cdot 5$ Apply the exponent to obtain: $=5 + 3(25) \div 3 \cdot 5$ Multiply 3 and 25 to obtain: $=5 + 75 \div 3 \cdot 5$ Perform the division to obtain: $=5 + 25 \cdot 5$ Multiply first, and then add to obtain: $=5+125 \\=130$
