What is the value of 4^(10)*8^(20)*16^(30)? Express your answer in the form a^b, where a and b are positive integers such that a is the least possible positive integer.

#1**+2 **

4^(10)*8^(20)*16^(30)

= (2^2)^10 * (2^3)^20 * (2^4)^30

= 2^(2 * 10) * 2^(3 * 20) * 2^(4 * 30)

= 2^20 * 2^60 * 2^120

= 2^(20 + 60 + 120)

= 2^200

This is the first time I have posted an answer here. Please let me know if I'm doing this right :)

Hi Teja2,

It is nice to meet you.

It is easier for me to answer myself than it is for me to check your answer.

So that is the only reason I am answering here

\(4^{10}*8^{20}*16^{30}\\ =2^{20}*2^{60}*2^{120}\\ =2^{200}\)

there you go, if you got it wrong then I did too.

**Give yourself a point!**
