change of base perhaps??
4^y = x 16^y-3 = x would that work out ?
change both bases to 4, then use the laws of exponents to combine\[\log_{16}(x+3)=y\] means \[16^y=(x+3)\] \[4^{2y}=x+3\] \[2y=log_4(x+3)\] \[y=\frac{log_4(x+3)}{2}\]

4^y - 4^(2y-6) = 1/2
i was close lol
change of base gets me two joined equations with a factored out x
log4(x) - [log4(x+3)/log4(16)] = 1/2 log4(x) - (1/2)log4(x+3) = 1/2
idk if i can change both bases to 4
log4(x/sqrt(x+3)) = 1/2
you can do that?
sqrt(4) = sqrt(x/(x+3)) i believe so :)
then exponentiate to get \[\frac{x}{\sqrt{x+3}}=4^{\frac{1}{2}}\]
4 = x/x+3 4x+12 = x 3x = -12 x = -4...maybe
i got lost in it for a moment....
no way -4 is an answer since you cannot take log of -4
i know i know.... my brain took a momentary leave of absence lol
the 4 is not negative
sqrt(4) = x/(x+3) is what i meant to type :)
4 = x^2/x^2+9+6x
4x^2 +24x +36 = x^2 3x^2 +24x +36 = 0... thats better me thinks
3(x^2 +8x +12) = 0
x = -6 and -2 by that accounting...... so maybe not ;)
oops start with \[\frac{x}{\sqrt{x+3}}=4^{\frac{1}{2}}\]
...... yeah, it would help if I did the actual problem instead of making up me own lol
\[x=2\sqrt{x+3}\]
\[x^2=4(x+3)=4x+12\] \[x^2-4x-12=0\] \[(x-6)(x+2)=0\] \[x=6, x=-2\] -2 not a solution. we can try 6 to see if it works.
yup 6 it is
hey where did the log16 go?
we..and be that i me sat.... modified it to a log4(x+3)/2
I get it its just i do not know where the log16 went the log of16 is 1.20411
change of base just changes the appearance and not the value
log4(16) not log(16)
let us go slow. \[log_{16}(x)=y\] means \[16^y=x\] for example \[log_{16}(4096)=3\] because \[16^3=4096\]
but \[16=4^2\] so it is also true that \[(4^2)^3=4069\] \[4^6=4069\] so \[log_4(4069)=6\]
so the log base 16 did not disappear, just converted to log base 4
oho i get it thank you :]
i got X=2.6667
how did you get that? i am fairly certain x = 6
