    Omg yess. Pikachu is love and life. And I know how to plug in the variable into the equation, I just have a hard time solving it. I think I got the answer though and I think it's -11.

    It would be /-4-2/+/-1+4/+-16 solve from there

    How did you get -1+4 and -16?

    those/ are basically paranthesis. do everything inside the paranthesis, then combine.

    -b2=4 because -2 times -2 is positive 4 2b3=-16 because -2 to the third power is -2 times -2 times -2, so that would equal -8, times 2, which would give you -16.

    Shortened down even more it would be: -6+3+-16 And then further:-3+-16 And further: -19

    I got -11. What I did was I solved the first part which was "0" and then the second part which was "5" and then the last part which was "-16" and I added 5+-16 and got -11

    Wait, I think the 5 I got might have actually been a 3.

    @ganeshie8 I think I got the answer wrong though. When I did |-1-(-2)^2| I keep getting different answers that aren't 5.

    |-1-(-2)^2| (-2)^2 = -2 x -2 = + 4 |-1 - (+4)| -1 - (+4) = -1 - 4 = -1 (1 + 4) = -1(5) = -5 |-5| = 5 So, can you identify where you are making the mistake and not getting 5 as the answer, now?
