You want to get x alone on one side. How can you do that? :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
i can do that by subtracting i think @Babynini
Babynini
  • Babynini
hm no because x is not added to 44. it's multiplied.

oh sorry i struggle a lot at math.
Babynini
  • Babynini
it's ok! me too lol. So since it's multiplied, we're going to divide.
Babynini
  • Babynini
divide both sides by 44 x=432/44
Babynini
  • Babynini
(we got rid of the 44 on the left side by dividing it by 44!)
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol and okay what are we multiplying?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay
Babynini
  • Babynini
so what does that equal?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i got on my calculator 9.8 idk how.
Babynini
  • Babynini
That's exactly correct :) good job!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh really thanks!
anonymous
  • anonymous
now what do i do?
Babynini
  • Babynini
so you just simplified the right side. and now your equation looks like this x=9.8 that's your answer :) (Do they ask for it in decimal or fraction form?)

  • anonymous
If (4^4)x = 4^32, what is the value of x? im very sorry i wrote the equation wrong.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Babynini
  • Babynini
is this a different question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
Babynini
  • Babynini
ok :) first calculate 4^4
Babynini
  • Babynini
do you know how?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
Babynini
  • Babynini
ok. \[4^4\] = 4 * 4 * 4 *4
Babynini
  • Babynini
because it's 4, 4 times. so what does 4 * 4* 4*4 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it equals 16
anonymous
  • anonymous
hello @Babynini
Babynini
  • Babynini
no, that's 4 *4
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh
Babynini
  • Babynini
(sorry, working on my own math too :)) so here we have 4*4 = 16 16*4= ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh im sorry if im disturbing you and is it 16X4 or 16 to the 4 power?
Babynini
  • Babynini
no you're all good 16 x 4
anonymous
  • anonymous
its 64
Babynini
  • Babynini
ok, let me try to explain this better sweetie. \[4^4= 4x4x4x4\] so first we take 4x4 = 16 then we take that answer and multiply it by 4 16x4 = 64 then we still have to multiply it by 4 one more time because we've only done it 3 times. 64 x 4 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it equals 256
Babynini
  • Babynini
perfect, and that's your answer for 4^4 because now you've multiplied 4 four times. make sense?
Babynini
  • Babynini
(4^4)x = 4^32 now we have 256x=4^32
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank you so much and again im sorry for disturbing you from your own math homework. have a nice day/night
Babynini
  • Babynini
wait! this stil has to be simplified more :)
Babynini
  • Babynini
want to finish solving it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh sorry i didnt know and yes please
Babynini
  • Babynini
it's ok. so 256x=4^32
Babynini
  • Babynini
now doing 4^32 would be a pain without a calculator. do you have a scientific calc?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no i do not :/
Babynini
  • Babynini
hrm ok, that's fine :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
Babynini
  • Babynini
let's see what we can do then, give me a moment :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
Babynini
  • Babynini
let's try getting x on one side by itself first then actually. so (4^4)x=4^32 we just did this, how do we get x by itself?
anonymous
  • anonymous
dividing
anonymous
  • anonymous
you have to divide both sides
Babynini
  • Babynini
perfect!
Babynini
  • Babynini
so we have \[x=\frac{ 4^{32} }{ 4^4 }\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
Babynini
  • Babynini
that can be simplified more but i'm not sure how :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh i understand now
anonymous
  • anonymous
i get now
Babynini
  • Babynini
ok!
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks for all your help and again sorry for interrupting you from your own math homework.
anonymous
  • anonymous
bye see ya
Babynini
  • Babynini
no it's all good :) cya
