When I'm asked to solve the expression (5k)k^3....first I check with my list of exponent rules, and there are always a few that could be used to solve the expression.I just dont know where to start first and at times arrive at an incorrect answer.

So,I just want to know..what should be my thought process, generally,in solving expressions like (5k)k^3 and similar ones.

Thank you.

(5k)k^3 = 5 * k * k * k * k
