  1. Calculate:
    1. 5(โˆ’2)45{\left( { - 2} \right)^4}
    2. โˆ’6(37) - 6\left( {{3^7}} \right)
    3. 8(4)38{\left( 4 \right)^3}
    4. 9(โˆ’42)9\left( { - {4^2}} \right)
  2. Calculate:
    1. 30โˆ’52+(63โˆ’23)30 - {5^2} + \left( {{6^3} - {2^3}} \right)
    2. 9โˆ’4(23)9 - 4\left( {{2^3}} \right)
    3. (โˆ’5โˆ’4)2+(โˆ’4)2{\left( { - 5 - 4} \right)^2} + {\left( { - 4} \right)^2}
    4. (โˆ’4)6รท23{\left( { - 4} \right)^6} \div {2^3}
