## Answer to Problem 19RE

The simplified form of the expression is, 16x3 .

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The expression , x2(2x)4x3

Formula used:

The algebraic identity: a4a3=a .

And the factorization method.

Calculation:

Consider the expression, x2(2x)4x3

x2(2x)4x3=x224x4x3

Apply the identity:.. a4a3=a .

x224x4x3=x22×2×2×2x=16x3

The above expression can’t be simplified further.

Thus, the simplified form of the expression is . 16x3
