May 23, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, evaluate the term with the EXPONENT:

$7 \left(16 \div \textcolor{red}{{4}^{2}}\right) \implies 7 \left(16 \div 16\right)$

Next, evaluate the term within the PARENTHESIS:

$7 \left(\textcolor{red}{16 \div 16}\right) \implies 7 \left(1\right)$ or $7 \cdot 1$

Next, evaluate the MULTIPLICATION:

$\textcolor{red}{7 \cdot 1} \implies 7$
