## algebra2sucks Group Title Solve the exponential equation. 1/16 = 64^ 4x-3 one year ago one year ago

1. geekwannabe

Just clarify. Is the equation \[1/16 = 64^{(4x-3)} ?\]

2. mahserindortatlisi

4^-2=4^12x-9 -2=12x-9 x=7/12

3. mahserindortatlisi

is it enough to understand ?

4. geekwannabe

I guess he/she decided to try it out :D

5. mahserindortatlisi

:) i think so

6. jennychan12

\[4^{-2} = 4^{3(4x-3)}\] solve from there?

7. mahserindortatlisi

yes

8. mahserindortatlisi

it's clearer than the other one to solve

9. jennychan12

where is @algebra2sucks ? and i wish i were back in algebra 2. calculus sucks!

10. geekwannabe

Haha, Linear Algebra is the pain more than Calculus @jennychan12

11. jennychan12

yes. that's the sad part. :( as my teacher said,"It's not the Calculus that's hard. It's the Algebra that goes with the Calculus."

12. mahserindortatlisi

next year i will have to take algebra dont scare me :D

13. geekwannabe

Oh no, piece of cake. Just a few brackets and sometimes it takes a few pages to solve one problem lol it's not hard, it's just too many numbers trying to confuse our eyes.

14. mahserindortatlisi

like discrete ?

15. geekwannabe

depends on which you take. If first time, probably you'll take Elementary Linear. Just couple more things to know but mainly solving for the more than 2x2 matrices.

16. jennychan12

haaa @geekwannabe

17. mahserindortatlisi

matrices more than 2x2 it's enough to consufe your mind

18. jennychan12

^ yep ugh. matrices. frustrating.

19. geekwannabe

I think when algebra2sucks comes back, he'll think someone spam his thread D: D:

20. jennychan12

sorry @algebra2sucks if we turned this into a discussion

21. geekwannabe

yup, just a heads up if later you're going to take another kind of Algebra.

22. algebra2sucks

Haha its cool so the answer is up there or i have to figure it out

23. jennychan12

i'll retype it. \[4^{-2} = 4^(4x-3)\] solve from there?

24. jennychan12

ahh sheeet \[4^{-2} = 4^{4x-3}\]

25. mahserindortatlisi

yes i did :) an hour ago we also did this conversation

26. mahserindortatlisi

but your answer was different check the other one the other one is true
