Edit: sorry about the title, it was warped when I pressed Control + z a few times. This is a question about monomials. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data How do I simplify (2n)4 + 2n4? 2. Relevant equations N/A 3. The attempt at a solution The problem I'm having is with the parenthesis. So really I just want to simplify (2n)4. Would it be 2n4 or 16n4? The first one seems more intuitive, but I have no idea what it should be. I'd really appreciate some help. This is the only part of math that I find unattractive.
