    Adding Exponent Variables

    Just a quick question. Is it correct to say that 2^k+2^k=2^(^k^+^1^)?

    Many thanks.

    Re: Adding Exponent Variables

    Yes. 2^k+2^k=2^k(1 + 1) = 2^k\cdot 2=2^{k+1}.

    LaTeX hint: you can surround the superscript with curly braces if it consists of more than one symbol.
