# How do you simplify (4x)^2(x)?

Jul 1, 2016

$16 {x}^{3}$

#### Explanation:

To simplify this expression, we must use the order of operations. So, we must square $4 x$ first.

${\left(4 x\right)}^{2} \left(x\right)$

$\left(16 {x}^{2}\right) \left(x\right)$

Now we can go ahead and multiply that value by $x$.

$\left(16 {x}^{2}\right) \cdot \left(x\right)$

$16 {x}^{3}$

And that's our simplified form!
