# Math Help - Basic calculation!

1. ## 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 $-12$ !!!

It seems so simple!

2. I agree,

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

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

$-5 : -18$

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

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

Thanx any way!!! =)
