The generel form would be -( 2^(n+2) ) -1 where n is the number of brackets

I would rewrite this as a sequence, where \(a_{1}=1+2, a_{2}=1+2(1+2)\) and so on. finding the values of each term would give you 3,7,15,31... and this ends up being \(a_{n}=2^{n+1} -1\). Therefore, the value you are finding for this problem would be \(2^{2018}-1\). Hope this is correct and if it's not, tell me and I will revise it :D
