Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02^(3x+3)64=2^(3x+1)16 so now assume the equation is true for both LHS = RHS =0 2^(3x+3)=64 x=1; 2^(3x+1)=16 x=1; so the answer will be x=1;

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just by randomly looking at the problem.. i'm sorry i cant come up with anything definite 2^6=64 and 2^4=16 and 6416=48 so.. You could just substitute and arrive at the answer easily...
