Hi
Could anyone help with this formula
[16^(26-25-1)]
I can work the second part out but powers have never been my strong subject
Thanks in advance

What is the second part?
I am sure you know 26 -25 -1 = 0
So, 16^(26 -25 -1) = 16^0
Then, any number raised to zero is equal to 1
so, 16^(26 -25 -1) = 16^0 = 1 -----answer.

Or do you mean this way?:
16^(26 -25 -1)
= 16^(26 -26)
= 16^26 *16^(-26)
= 16^26 *1 / 16^26
= 16^26 / 16^26
= 1
