Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then you would have 10^2(2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So we have 10^x+1 / 10^x3, becomes 10^(x+1)(x3), (x3) = x + 3, right? So we have 10^x+1x+3 Finally: We have 10 to all these together: x x +1 +3 x + (x) = 0 1 + 3 = 4 0+4 = 4 So we have 10^4
