    Now try \((3^{3} + 2\cdot 3^{3})\) Hint: It is EXACTLY the same.

    one apple and two apples are three apples one \(3^3\) and two \(3^3\) are three \(3^3\) and \(3\times 3^3=3^{1+3}=3^4\)

    if your professor really wrote \[3\times 3^3\] he/she was not paying attention

    Try to see it this way: you have: 3^3 + 2 • 3^3, so this is 1 • 3^3 + 2 • 3^3 = 3 • 3^3 (you have 3 times 3^3). Last step: 3 • 3^3 = 3 • 3•3•3 = 3^4 (=81, I fail to see why you would stop after writing it as 3^4, just calculate the outcome...)
