\[\log_x 9 = \frac 12\] first step is to change it into exponential form \[x^{1/2} = 9\] do you agree with this form

good. so we need x. you have x^1/2 what do you think you should do to make that x^1/2 into just x^1?

here's a hint \[\LARGE (a^3)^{1/3} = a^{3/3} = a^1 = a\] \[\LARGE (a^2)^{1/2} = a^{2/2} = a^1 = a\] \[\LARGE (a^{1/3})^3 = a^{3/3} = a^1 = a\]
