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)
7x^2=243 (Combine like terms)
x^2=34.71428571 (Divide each side by 7/simplify)
-34.71428571+x^2=34.71428571 +-34.71428571(reorder)
-34.71428571+x^2=0.00000000
Answer: The solution to this equation can not be determined.

    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.
