Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We have\[9^{2x}=27\] \[(3^{2})^{2x}=3^{3}\] \[3^{4x} = 3^{3}\] so 4x = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.29 is nothing but 3^2 and 27 is 3^3 so we need to make the base common to make it possible to solve for 'x'.... so............... 3^2(2x) = 3^3 therefore 3^4x = 3^3 since the base is the same, the exponents are equal;( since it is an equation and the left hand side is equal to the right hand side). so, 4x = 3 hence x = 3/4
