    well we are given -\[(x^4)^2\]and we need to simplify it :D we know that \[(a^m)^n=a ^{m*n}\]so can u apply this in our question?

    That (a^m)^n=a^m*n makes no since to me what so ever... is that the formula or something??

    a^4 is defined as a, multiplied to itself 4 times: aaaa b^2 is defined as b, mulitplied to itself 2 time: bb let b = a^4 bb = a^4 a^4 = aaaa aaaa but aaaa aaaa is the definition of a^8
