# Algebra II

How would you go about doing this problem? I've tried and with the answer given I still can't figure it out. If anyone could explain it would be greatly appreciated!

(((2x)^2 2x)^2 2x)^2

• Algebra II - eh? -

what do you want to do? simplify the expression? just work your way inside-out.

(2x)^2 = 4x^2

but now we have (4x^2 2x) ... ??

what does (2x)^2 2x mean? is there a missing operator there? +? *?

• Algebra II -

When I have (2x)^2 2x on the paper the 2x to the right is right after the squared. So its (((2x) squared 2x) squared 2x) squared

• Algebra II -

I still don't get it

squared is written ^2
as in 3^2 = 9

3^2 3 doesn't mean anything. Especially followed by a parenthesis

Normally two numbers separated by a space are multiplied, as in 3 x = 3 times x

This (2x)^2 2x just makes no sense. Are the parentheses written as you show them? Oh well; maybe smarter heads than mine will see it.

Is it (2x)^(2x)^(2x) ? Doubt it
