Solve for n: (4n)^3 (2^n + 2) = (4^2)^n – 1

ok first what can you do to the first term sorry if it looks like i'm stalking you, these are the kinds of problems I love, kind of a nerd

No problem, hahah I really appreciate when someone helps me. 4^3n

is this correct?

it would be correct if the equation war (4^n)^3 well lets look at it (4xn)^3 when you have an exponent touching parenthesis with no adding of subtracting in them then you use the exponent on everything, does that make sense?

no, it does not

make sense..

ok well if you have something like\[(x+y)^2\]then tou have to put it out like this\[(x+y)(x+y)\]but if you have multiplication or division instead of addition or subtraction like\[(xy)^2\]then it simplifies to this\[x^2y^2\]

ok so then it is 4^3n^3

I'm getting confused now. OK this is a problem that we're probably over thinking. what I would suggest stepping away from this problem for a little while, do another one and then come back.

Ok. I am sorry for confusing and causing a problem for you. Thank you very very much for everything

oh no problem, I'm sorry I couldn't figure this one out.

No worries. Thank you for trying :)
