((5-3+(6x5)) + (8+2-5)) x 2
I got confused as thought you added no brackets around the numbers making it like this:
(5-3+(6x5)) + (8+2-5) x 2
Therefore I ended with a different answer until of course I looked at the equation again. Brackets are an enemy.
If you'ld write it as a real equation the brackets can be dissolved completly:
(5-3+6*5+8+2-5)*2
look at math problem... vaguely attempt solving math problem until I realize that it's boring because I don't even know WHY I'm solving it (I beleive in story problems and story problems only)... conclude "fuck it!" and check out someone else's answer

I look at the equation and then my mind goes like this:
Then I get the calculator out.
