**The Solution**

Here is how we can break it down: **150 – 2 ( 2 + 5) ² =?**

- First of all, we need to start with solving the addition in the brackets

**150 – 2 ( 7) ²** - Then you square the result in the brackets

**150 – 2 (49)** - You continue with solving the multiplication:

**150 – 98** - Now you have the solution to the equation:
**It’s 52**
