(3 x 8)2 + (3+6)=17, I need a word problem to match the equation and am stumped, could you please help

(3x^(8))2+(3+6)=17
(3x^(8))2+(9)=17
3x^(8)2+9=17
3x^(8)+7=17
3x^(8)=7+17
3x^(8)=10
(3x^(8))/(3)=(10)/(3)
x^(8)=(10)/(3)
x=\~8:((10)/(3))
x=\(~8:(10))/(~8:(3))
x=\(~8:(10))/(~8:(3))*(~8:((3)^(7)))/(~8:((3)^(7)))
x=\(~8:(21870))/(3)
x=(~8:(21870))/(3)
x=(~8:(21870))/(3)
x=(~8:(21870))/(3),(~8:(21870))/(3)_x<Congruent>1.16,1.16
