    Post 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 !!!

    Can you Help me please?
    It seems so simple!

    I agree,

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

    1 -6 : (-2) -16

    -5 :  -18
