I have added the following clarification for Carmin. It is reproduced here in case you are also interested.
=25 a14 a-5
the denominator 2 in the fraction (7/2) is an exponent and not a simple number. This is probably from where you got the 16.

So the 16 is not part of the answer? It's just 25 a^9?
