Let's first start with the original question:

Notice that we're working with 2 terms - one with a base of 2 and the other with a base of 4. But remember that

When dealing with exponentials, when we take a power of a power (like with the

When we have a situation where two numbers with exponentials are multiplying that have the same base, we add the exponentials together, so here we'll get

So that's the simplified form. Solved, it equals 2048.
