Basic calculation!
Hello folks!

I'm with some doubts here:

The expression:

$(-1)^0 + (-6) : (-2) -2^4$

is ?

Here is the way I've tried...

$(-1)^0 + (-6) : (-2) -2^4$

$\underbrace{(-1)^0} + (-6) : (-2) \underbrace{-2^4}$

$1 - 6 : -2 -16$

$-5 : -18$

But the result should be $-12$ !!! (Headbang)

It seems so simple!

I agree,

$(-1)^0 + (-6) : (-2) -2^4$

$1 -6 : (-2) -16$

$-5 : -18$

Uhm... Yes, I tried again and this is the result!

If I find some other result I'll post here!

Thanx any way!!! =)
