## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

This is an order of operations problem. We first consider inside of the parenthesis. Inside the parenthesis, we see an exponent, so we consider that first. $2^{4}$=16. We now consider the other operation inside the parenthesis, subtraction. 16-6=10. Finally, we see that everything in the parenthesis is raised to the power of 2. Thus, we obtain: $10^{2}$=100
