To be clear, 'itself' = 2 inside the parentheses, then 4 outside the parenthesis, as a result of the operation inside the parenthesis.

As previously stated, I'm just playing around and assuming it was a kind of puzzle regardless of the thread title.

Maybe if it was presented as 2×2 = 4. 4×4 = 16. Otherwise, it's just 8. 2^3 is also just 8. One can imagine 2 being equal to 2^1, and with the same base, the exponent can be added. 2^1×2^1×2^1 is equivalent to 2×2×2.

Sometimes, there isn't a correct answer, because the fucking question is wrong.

If you want to have a good shot at answering a question that isn't wrong, go to a fucking university, and study something like physics.
