Answer = E. 108

\(2^{3k+2} = 2^{3k} * 2^2 = (2^{k})^{3} * 4 = 3^3 * 4 = 108\)

We need to determine the value of (2^3k)(2^2) or (2^3k)(4).

Since 2^k = 3, 2^3k = (2^k)^3 = 3^3 = 27.

Therefore, (2^3k)(4) = 27 x 4 = 108.

Answer: E

Kudos for a correct solution.


2^k = 3---I

2^(3k+2)=(2^3k)*(2^2)

Cube I and multiple with 2^2

(2^k)^3==>3^3==>27*4=108

pretty straight forward...
you need to be careful on re-writing everything
2^(3k+2) can be rewritten as (2^k)^3 * 2^2
(2^k)^3 = 3^3 = 27
2^2 = 4

27*4 = 108
answer is E.

Kudos for a correct solution.


Given: \(2^k = 3\)

Expanding the expression we have at hand, we will get the following

\(2^{3k+2} = 2^{3k}*2^2 = (2^k)^3*4 = 3^3*4 = 27*4 = 108\)

Therefore, the value of the expression \(2^{3k+2}\) is 108 (Option A)
