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.

(4x-2)= (3x+6)
and solve for x.

That doesn't work if you check it, did you do it wrong?

oops.

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.

4(4x-2)= 6(3x+6)
and solve for x.

    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)
