    Notice:\[64 ^{4 - x} = (4^3)^{4 - x}\]

    Oh, 4^3 is equal to 64. So would I make it: \[64^{4-x}=64^{4-x}\]

    Sadly I don't have a textbook, I do online school. I've been trying to reach my teacher all morning but she hasn't responded :/

    do what @ParthKohli said rewrite \(64\) as \(4^3\) this means \(64^{4-x}=4^{3(4-x)}=4^{12-3x}\)

    then you know \(12-3x=2x\) so you can solve for \(x\)

    do what satellite73 tells you to do if you can create the same bases then you can set the exponents equal to each other and solve for x
