  1. I would change both to base 10, then do the arithmetic.
    2435 = 2(5^2) + 4(5) + 3 = 73
    2436 = 2(6^2) + 4(6) + 3 = 99

    now do the subtraction
    You don't say what base the answer is to be.

    Find X 27^4x-2=243^3x+6 Please explain how to do it. Thanks 27^(4x-2)=243^(3x+6) Notice that 27 and 243 are both multiples of 3 Changing them.. (3^4)^(4x-2)=(3^6)^(3x+6) 3^4(4x-2)= 3^6(3x+6) taking the log base 3 of each side.

    Solve each equation by factoring. 7x²-243=0 I know I'm supposed to add 243 to the other side but don't know what else to do. Divide maybe? Thanks in advance. -243+7x^2= 0 (reorder) -243+243+7x^2 = 0+243 (add 243 to both sides)

    Find X 27^4x-2=243^3x=6 Please Explain Thanks Is this a repeat of the problem you posted earlier? If so, it should be 274x-2 = 2433x+6 You might try it the hard way. (4x-2)*log 27 = (3x+6)*log (243) Solve for x. I get -12. Post
