    is that supposed to be \((y^3)^4\)?

    When you multiply 2 powers, you add them. So say you have \(x^3\times x^2\), you'd get \(x^5\). BUT when you take a power to a power, you have to multiply them. So \((x^3)^2\) would be \(x^6\). Does that make sense? In your case, you're taking a power to a power. So, rethink your answer and let me know what you get.
