A student answered the following skill-testing question to try and win a prize:

(-4)^3-(-2)^4/2^2+5^2*7^0

The students answer was 5. Did the student win the prize?

I couldn’t seem to figure out how to answer this question. I got the answer -13, but my answer sheet said -43. I’m not very good with exponents, so could someone help me through this?
