    5x{(24-19)x[(25+23)divided by 12-(9-7)]}

    Rewriting that,
    5*{(24-19)[(25+23)/12 -(9-7)]}

    = 5{(5)[(48)/12 -(2)]}

    = 5{5[4 -2]}

    = 5{5[2]}

    = 5{10}

    = 50

    You need explanations per step?
    Follow each step above and ask me what you don't understand.

    I am sure your teacher or your books taught you about doing first the insides of the parentheses, per groupings, etc....
