    similar example (c3)4=c3∗4 (c3)4=c12 note: this isn't the answer to your question as it's just a similar example

    @OregonDuck You gave a good example that was correct. \((c^3)^4 = c^{12}\) showing that the exponents are multiplied. Then the poster said the answer is C. c^11, which means the exponents were added, you said that was correct. Answer C. is incorrect bec the exponents need to be multiplied not added.

    \(\huge\rm x^mx^n = x^{m + n}\) is what some people seem to be thinking about, but this problem is not in that form.
