Edit: sorry about the title, it was warped when I pressed Control + z a few times. This is a question about monomials.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

How do I simplify (2n)^{4}+ 2n^{4}?

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 2n^{4}or 16n^{4}? 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.
