Simplify the numerical expression ( − 2 ) 2 + ( − 2 ) 3 − 3 2

To determine

To simplify:

The numerical expression (2)2+(2)332.

Explanation

Approach:

The numerical expressions can be simplified by the help of basic algebra. The operation performed between two terms is ranked by the rule of BODMAS. BODMAS stands for Brackets, Orders, Division, Multiplication, Addition, and Subtraction.

Where brackets are operated in the following manner:

First round bracket () is operated; second curly bracket {} is operated; and finally square bracket [] are operated.

In BODMAS, Orders stands for numbers with power, example:22=2×2, 31=13.

Calculation:

The numerical expression is (2)2+(2)332.

First solve the brackets and number with powers,
