2^(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;

just 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...

assume the equation is true for both LHS = RHS =0 LHS: 2^(3x+3)=64 2^(3x+3)= 2^6 implies 3x+3=6 (since base is equal) equating 3x+3=6, we get x=1 similarly try for RHS and give me the answer
