There's no "equation" like it says in your subject (no equals, no variable) so there's nothing that can be solved. Did it maybe say "simplify"? because that would make more sense.

The first one is just order of operations (lesson) and the second one is simplifying with powers (lesson) and parentheses (lesson) which are part of order of operations. Do the parts in the right order and it'll all come out right in the end.

If you get stuck or if you're not sure your answer is good, please write back.
