-24 is the same as saying -2 times itself 4 times, or (-2)*(-2)*(-2)*(-2). This can be simplified to 4*4, which is equal to 16.

An exception is if it is -(24). Because the negative sign is "outside" the influence of the power, you are now finding 2*2*2*2 and making it negative, so the answer would be negative16.
