I need to simplify an expression. I am currently working on the following problem (I apologize in advance for formatting, I'm not sure how to use it on Stack Exchange):

$81^{(\log_{3}N)+(log_{9}N)}$

It's been several years since I've taken algebra so I do not remember at all how to simplify this. I'm not asking for or need an exact answer, but some guidance on how to do it on my own would be entirely beneficial to doing problems like this in the future.

Hints: (you must be sure you dominate the basic rules of logarithms!)

$$81^{\log_3N+\log_9N}=3^{4\log_3N+4\log_9N}=3^{\log_3N^4}\cdot9^{\frac{1}{2}\log_9N^4}=N^4N^2\ldots$$
