Solve the exponential equation using logarithms. Give the answer in decimal form, rounding to four decimal places. (Enter your answers as a comma-separated list.) 4x − 3 = 32x x = _____

I assume you meant 4^(x-3) = 32^x Since 4=2^2 and 32=2^5, we have 2^(2x-6) = 2^(5x) 2x-6 = 5x 3x = -6 x = -2 Check: 4^(-5) = 2^-10 32^(-2) = 2^-10

no it looks more like this: 4^(x-3)=3^2x
