I think he wants it in simplest form.

 

I haven't learned logs yet, so oof

One of the ways you could solve this in could be log.

There is nothing to solve Tom because there is no equal sign.  surprise

 

2^(2x+3) -2^(x+2) -3 * 4

 

\(2^{2x+3}-2^{x+2}-3*4\\ 2^{2x+3}-2^{x+2}-12\\ 2^{x+2+x+1}-2^{x+2}-12\\ 2^{x+2}*2^{x+1}-2^{x+2}-12\\ 2^{x+2}(2^{x+1}-1)-12\\ 4*2^x(2*2^x-1)-12\\ 8*2^{2x}-4*2^x-12\\ 8*4^x-4*2^x-12\\ 4(2*4^x-2^x-3)\)

 

 

I am just mucking around.

I really do not know what the question wants.

yea that's what i was thinking as well...i tried to do it with logs but like it doesnt have an equal sign so you can't really do much other than simplify the -3 and 4
