4^5 + 4^7

First we can factor out 4^5 and we are left with;

4^5(1 + 4^2)

Then we can compute 4^2, which is 16.

4^5(1 + 16)

the result is;

4^5(17)

Whenever you have addition or subtraction of same bases raised to different exponents, try factoring out the least common exponent.

4^5+4^7 = 4^5(1+4^2)
=4^5(17)

What is the value of \(4^5+4^7\)?

(A) \(4^{12}\)
(B) \(4^{35}\)
(C) \(17(4^5)\)
(D) \(8^{12}\)
(E) \(7(4^5)\)



Simplifying, we have:

4^5(1 + 4^2) = 4^5(17)

Answer: C

Someone could explain me in details how is the process of factoring out the least common of an exponent?
I tried to figure out by myself but didn't find any theoretical material
