im not going to give anyone the answer i will only let them figure it out with a little help. i now they know the answer or how to get it

- anonymous

they just need to know they can do it

- anonymous

@iamasofty, the answer is easy, just substitute x = -2 and y = -4 into 4(x-y)^4 which gives 4([-2]-[-4])^4 = 4(-2+4)^4 = 4 (2)^4 = 4 x 64 =16+ 240 = 256
explaining it is a little more difficult
