I have the problem 27^4z=9^(z+1) I don't want the answer, just help figuring out the proper way to simplify both sides of the equation so I can add the exponents. I know the bases will be the same, 3^(whatever power)

I have gotten as far as 3^3(4z)=3^2(z+1)
log both sides
I don't know what to do with the exponents, whether I should add them, multiply them, divide them or whatever else. I am not familiar with the log function yet. The chapter the homework is in is on exponential functions, so trying to do it that way first.

log(27^4z) = log(9^(z+1))
4z (log(27)) = (z+1) (log(9))

I already have the bases, I just need to know what to do with the exponents. Again, trying to do this without a calculator. I want to understand the process before I rely on a calculator for the answers
exponents an logs are hand in hand. they are inverses of each other and you need logs to work exponents with a variable in them
you can "remember" exponents if you want and try to recall what is what... but it is harder
