Time for the answer

The first thing to do is to figure out the solution to the problem inside the parenthesis.

2 + 1 = 3

Then you have to do the multiplication. In this case, the number before the parenthesis, multiplied by the result of the problem inside it.

7 x 3 = 21

Now the rest becomes very easy.

5 + 21= 26

The answer is: 26, option B
