Expert Solution

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 .
