    These were the choices i was given x = negative 21 over 2 x = -6 x = negative 6 over 5 x = -12

    Does this happen to be from a lesson called "Solve Exponential Equations" ?

    Okay.. Uhm.. I've never seen one with a square root but let me see if I can solve it then I'll show you

    \[\large \sqrt{(7)}^{6x}=49^{x-6}\]\[\large (\sqrt{7})^{6x} = \color{green}{(\sqrt{7})^{4(x-6)}}\]\[\large 6x = 4(x-6)\]\[\large 6x=4x-24\] solve for x.

    No^^^ Its not 7^4. It's 7^2.

    i changed it to the sae base.\(\sqrt{7}^4\)=49. and you've gotthe base \(\sqrt{7}\) on the left side.

    Tell me how you changed \(\large (\sqrt{7})^{6x}\) to just 7?

    I just figured because you square it. I've never done one like this. I was going out on a limb. But you are are correct because qroot7^4 is 49.

    So in that case it's -12 and not -6/5.

    I just put 7^2 because I knew you have to have like the same "base number" Or whatever.

    That 's if you want to use 7 and not sqrt(7)

    \[\large (\sqrt{7})^4 = 7^{4/2} = 7^2 \]
