Work Step by Step

$10-[(4-5)^{2}+(12-14)]^{4}$ To simplify this expression, first perform the operations in parentheses. $10-[(-1)^{2}+(-2)]^{4}$ Next, perform the operations in brackets. $10-[(-1\times-1)+(-2)]^{4}=10-[1+(-2)]^{4}=10-[-1]^{4}$ Finally, perform the remaining operations. $10-(-1\times-1\times-1\times-1)=10-(1)=9$
