Consider the following two values:

\begin{align} A &= 4^{5000} \cdot 4^{5000} \\ B &= 2^{19999} + 2^{19999} \end{align}

Which is bigger?

i think they are equal since if you simplify,

$$A=4^{5000}\cdot4^{5000}=2^{10000}\cdot2^{10000}=\boxed{2^{20000}}$$

$$B=2^{19999}+2^{19999}=2(2^{19999})=\boxed{2^{20000}}$$

I'm not sure if this is right, so please let me know if it is! :)
