You just need to remember the order that operations are to be performed.

$2$$300-40\div5$$ - [3\times 23 - (8-2\times3)]$

Is that it?

Multiplication and division come before addition and subtraction. We're working withing the brackets, so that is okay.

$2$$300-8$$ - [69 - (8-6)]$

Now that there are only brackets to work with, we do what there is in brackets.

$2$$292$$ - [69 - 2]$

And the last operations:

$584 - 67$

$517$

For the next one:

$2\times600-8$

Multiply first!

And for the last one:

$2\times 277 -15$

That's good!
