Can somebody explain the rules of algebra so that the following expression makes sense:
\(\displaystyle 2^{2 \cdot 2^m}+1\) \(\displaystyle =\left(2^{2^m}\right)^2+1\)
I thought that \(\displaystyle \left(2^{2^m}\right)^2+1\) \(\displaystyle =4^{ \cdot 4^(m^2)}+1\) but apparently thats wrong.
\(\displaystyle 2^{2 \cdot 2^m}+1\) \(\displaystyle =\left(2^{2^m}\right)^2+1\)
I thought that \(\displaystyle \left(2^{2^m}\right)^2+1\) \(\displaystyle =4^{ \cdot 4^(m^2)}+1\) but apparently thats wrong.
