I have this question for yall, what is (2x^3y)^6? A friend of mine is trying to tell me that the answer is 2x^18y^6 because 2x is one number. Please help!

I think this is your actual question.......

Alan is telling you the question that your friend has effectively answered, which is a different question. Some confusion here. :)

Anyway....

\((2x^3y)^6\\ =(2\times x^3\times y)^6\\ =2^6\times(x^3)^6\times y^6\\ =64\times x^{18}\times y^6\\ =64 x^{18} y^6\\ \)
