I can see one answer just by observation. See if you can also spot it if you rearrange your equation as:\[4^x+4^{\frac{1}{x}}=4+4\]

actually is this legal process? is any other method is there?

asnaseer Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
:) I'm not sure if it is a "legal" mathematical proof or not, but that is the method I used. Maybe others can come up with alternatives?
