2^2n + 2^2n + 2^2n + 2^2n = 4^24

=> 4 x 2^2n = 4^24 = 2^48

=> 2^2 x 2^2n = 2^48

=> 2^(2n+2) = 2^48

=> 2n+2 = 48=> n =23

So. Answer will be D.

Hope it helps!

1) 3

2) 6

3)12

4)23

5)24

A tough question.

:)


Not really! The takeaway from this question is: when you have addition/subtraction between terms with exponents, you need to think about taking common. Also, in all exponent questions, consider making the base of every term same, if possible.

\(2^{2n} + 2^{2n} + 2^{2n} + 2^{2n} = 4^{24}\)

Taking \(2^{2n}\) common,

\(2^{2n}(1 + 1 + 1 + 1) = 2^{48}\)

\(2^{2n}*4 = 2^{48}\)
\(2^{2n}*2^2 = 2^{48}\)
\(2^{2n+2} = 2^{48}\)

Now simply put 2n + 2 = 48
n = 23

4. 2^2n = 4^24

4. 4^n = 4^24

4^(n+1) = 4^24

Equating powers, n+1=24; n=23 Answer = D
