Dear alanforde800Maximus,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

Here, we have to be comfortable with the laws of exponents. For example, A^(pq) = (A^p)^q. That's a very important patterns to know.

Here, 2^(2x) can be rewritten as (2^x)^2. Since, we know that 2^x = 7, we know that (2^x)^2 = 49. Answer = (A).

Here are some GMAT Math Flashcards you might find helpful.

Does this make sense?
Mike :-)

2^2x = 2^x * 2^x = 7*7 = 49

For this question

\(2^x = 7\)

We have to find (2)^2x

Now we can write 2^2x as \((2^x)^2\)

Which will imply \(7^2\)

Giving answer as A
