Limits Question
Okay I don't have a math writer program so I'll do my best to write this out.

lim t (Exp. -1/2) ((t^2) - 14t)^(3/5)
t->16

Okay so the (Exp. 1/2) is an exponent in front of the equation.

I don't know what to do when an exponent is in the front.

do you mean $\lim_{t \to 16} e^{-1/2} (t^2 - 14t)^{3/5}$?

just plug in t = 16

Oh man that was so dumb...I was reading it wrong thinking that the t wasn't part of the equation...thanks though.
