The expression is simplified to $-42$.
Simplifying this expression requires knowing the order of operations. We multiply and divide from left to right: $$-10 + (16\div 2)(-4)$$ Simplify: $$-10 + 8(-4)$$ We multiply again: $$-10 + (-32)$$ We then do addition and subtraction from left to right. In this case, we are adding a negative number, which means that we subtract the number: $$-10 - 32$$ The expression is simplified to $-42$.
