Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the problem is 2 raised to the power (5−3x) = 1/16, then taking log[base 2] of both sides of equation LHS and RHS, gives us log[base 2] of 2 raised to the power (5−3x) = log[base 2]1/16, then the LHS is 53x and the right RHS is log[base 2](1/16). So equation is now 53x = 4, then 5+4 = 3x, and 9/3 = x. Thus x = 3...
