# Apply the rules for order of operations to simplify 2 + 3 - 4 + (5 × 4).

**Solution:**

We follow the BODMAS rule to simplify the given expression.

We are given 2 + 3 − 4 + (5 × 4).

Since brackets come before addition and subtraction in the BODMAS rule, we solve the expression inside the bracket first.

⇒ Since, (5 × 4) = 20, we get 2 + 3 - 4 + 20.

Now, we perform addition and subtraction operations.

⇒ Since, 2 + 3 = 5, we get 5 - 4 + 20.

⇒ Since, 5 - 4 = 1, we get 1 + 20.

⇒ Finally, we get 20 + 1 = 21.

Therefore, by simplification of 2 + 3 - 4 + (5 × 4) we get 21.

## Apply the rules for order of operations to simplify 2 + 3 - 4 + (5 × 4).

**Summary:**

Applying the rules for order of operations to simplify 2 + 3 - 4 + (5 × 4) we get 21.
