\(E. 2^{10}3^25^2\)



\((2^5+2^6+2^7+2^8)^2\)
=\(2^{10}*(1+2+2^2+2^3)^2\)
=\(2^{10}*(1+2+4+8)^2\)
=\(2^{10}*15^2\)
=\(2^{10}3^25^2\)..... Hence I would go for option E.

=>

\((2^5+2^6+2^7+2^8)^2\)
\(= (2^5 ( 2^0 + 2^1 + 2^2 + 2^3 ))^2\)
\(= (2^5 ( 1 + 2 + 4 + 8 ))^2\)
\(= (2^5 (15))^2\)
\(= (2^5 (3*5))^2\)
\(= 2^{10}*3^2*5^2\)

Therefore, E is the answer.
Answer : E

\((2^5+2^6+2^7+2^8)^2\) = \((2^5+2^6+2^7+2^8)*(2^5+2^6+2^7+2^8)\)

This is not the same as squaring each term in the equation.

Think of it with simple numbers \((3+4)^2\)=7*7=49, this is not the same as \(3^2+4^2\)= 9+16=25

Maybe take a look at these links here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/math-algebra-101576.html

\(E. 2^{10}3^25^2\)


Factoring out the common 2^5 from the four terms, we have:

[2^5(1 + 2^1 + 2^2 + 2^3)]^2

[2^5(15)]^2

(2^5 x 3^1 x 5^1)^2

2^10 x 3^2 x 5^2

Answer: E
