You are only allowed to ask one question in a post.

To evaluate (2-5)^2 ÷ 3 × 4 follow the rule of operations abbreviated as BODMAS. For operations with the same precedence move from left to right.

(2-5)^2 ÷ 3 × 4

=> (-3)^2 ÷ 3 × 4

=> 9 ÷ 3 × 4

=> 3 × 4

=> 12

The result of (2-5)^2 ÷ 3 × 4 = 12
