-16 because a negative times a positive is a negative Is that a better explanation? (:

12. phi

with a small 4 in the upper right ?

13. phi

you should use an ^ to show that (-4)^4 that "little 4" is an exponent, and it is short for multiply the "big number" times itself 4 times $(-4)^4 = -4 \cdot -4 \cdot -4 \cdot -4$
