Find X


Please Explain


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 your work if you get stuck.

You have too many = signs. Is the second one (before the 6) supposed to be a + or - ? Is the first exponent supposed to be x-2 or x ?

You need to learn how to use parentheses to clarify your equations when typing them.

    I posted this problem earlier and you answered it for me. The teacher said the correct answer is 3+2y/7-4y. How is that the answer. Below is what you did earlier 3/(y+2) / (7/y-4)) = 3/(y+2) * (y-4)/7 = (3y-12)/(7y+14) or

    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)
