    wont it be instead of 3 it would be squared and be 9?

    No \(\Large(3^{4n}a ^3)^2\) 4*2=8 and 3*2=6 \(\Large3^{8n}a ^6~\to~a^63^{8n}\)

    you can memorize the rule \[ (x^a)^b = x^{ab} \] which means multiply the exponents but you can use this idea: \[ x^2 \text{ means } x \cdot x \] so \[ (3^{4n}a ^{3})^{2} \text{ means } (3^{4n}a ^{3})(3^{4n}a ^{3}) \]

    you can re-arrange that to \[ (3^{4n}\cdot 3^{4n}\cdot a ^{3}\cdot a ^{3})\]

    if you don't know about "adding exponents" you could figure out \[ a^3 \cdot a^3 \] by knowing that \(a^3 = a\cdot a \cdot a \) \[ a^3 \cdot a^3 = a\cdot a \cdot a \cdot a\cdot a \cdot a= a^6\]

    but to do \[ 3^{4n} \cdot 3^{4n} \] you need to know the rule: if you have the same base, add the exponents \[ 3^{4n+4n} \] or \[3^{8n} \]
