If the problem has parenthesis then it means each thing in the parenthesis is to use the exponent. You can think of them separately... (2t^3)^4 = [2^4][(t^3)^4]

\[\large (2t^3)^4\] \[\large (2t^3)(2t^3)(2t^3)(2t^3)\] \[\large (2*2*2*2)(t^3*t^3*t^3*t^3)\] \[\large 16t^{3+3+3+3}\] \[\large 16t^{12}\] So \[\large (2t^3)^4=16t^{12}\]
