I suggest you do the same, kid. PEMDAS is supposed to eliminate each part of the equation, meaning you get rid of the parenthesis first, meaning you multiply the 2 with the result of the parenthesis.
But, like num said, the problem is poorly structured and people will solve it different ways. My way, which eliminates the parenthesis (as you're supposed to) comes up with 2. If it wasn't poorly structured then there wouldn't be 4 damn answers.
