Jun 15, 2015

=color(blue)(256 ( assuming r != 0)

#### Explanation:

(4r^0)^color(blue)(4
Here, we need to multiply $\textcolor{b l u e}{4}$ with the power of each term within the bracket.

=4^color(blue)4 .r^(0. color(blue)(4)

$= 256. {r}^{0}$

$= 256. 1$ ------------- As (any non-zero number)$^ 0 = 1$

=color(blue)(256
