Homework Help: Math

Posted by Jack on Monday, March 24, 2008 at 2:13pm.

This is quite confusing...
I'm helping someone with math. They have a problem, -4^2, and the people we're both talking to can't agree on whether it's -16 or 16. Google returns -16, my calculator returns 16. Google, however, changes it to -(4^2).

I figured it was 16 since -4 * -4 = 16, but I have a habit of incorrectly remembering math concepts...

Help is greatly appreciated. :D
