    There isn't much steps here.

    Multiply 3*60 = 180. (hope I don't need to explain process of multiplication).

    Sum 60+3=63 (also hope adding isn't problem).

    Then calculate 180-63=117.

    So, (3)(60) - (60+3)=117.

    Work inside the parenthesis first:
    (3) (60) - (60+3)

    (3) (60) - (63)

    Multiplication comes before subtraction:
    180 - (63)

    117
