let u = 9^x then, 9^(2x) = (9^x)^2 = u^2 Thus all you have is u^2+4u = 21 u^2+4u-21 = 0 (u+7)(u-3) = 0 so, u = -7 or u=3 But, u = 9^x ...
*July 24, 2016*

**Math**

this is just a quadratic in 9^x. So, it factors out as 9^(2x) + 4(9^x) - 21 = 0 (9^x + 7)(9^x - 3) = 0 9^x cannot be -7, so you are left with 9^x = 3 x = 1/2
