I attempted to do this problem like this:

2^5+2^5+3^5+3^5+3^5

= 2^5+2^1 + 3^5+3^1+3^1

= 2^(5+1) + 3^(5+1+1)

2^6+3^7

Can somebody explain what I did wrong? :? Thanks.

I get it now. :lol: Hope this is right.

I attempted to do this problem like this:
2^5+2^5+3^5+3^5+3^5

2^5+2^5 + 3^5+3^5+3^5

= 2^5 (1+1) +3^5(1+1+1)

= 2^5 (2^1) + 3^5(3^1)

= 2^6 + 3^6
