Is it possible to do this
432(140x)^3 = 60480432x^3
or do i have to expand it like this
432(140x)(140x)(140x)

Math 
bobpursley,
The last way is correct.

Math 
Reiny,
You will have to expand it, your first line is incorrect.
test it with numbers...
e.g.
3(2^3) = 3(2)(2)(2) = 3(8) = 24
the way you wanted to do it would be
(6)^3 or 216
