(4^7 + 4^8 + 4^9 + 4^10)/5
=(4^7(1 + 4 + 4^2 + 4^3))/5
=(4^7(1+4+16+64))/5
=4^7(85)/5
=4^7(17) which is 17 times 4^7(Option E)

(4^7 + 4^8 + 4^9 + 4^10)/5 = x * 4^7

=> 4^7 * (1+4+4^2+4^3)/5 = x * 4^7

=> (1+4+16+64)/5 = x

=> 85/5 = x = 17

Answer is E. 17

$$4^7$$(1+4+$$4^2$$+$$4^3$$)/5
$$4^7$$(1+4+16+64)/5
$$4^7$$(85)/5
$$4^7$$*17

Thus x=17
