Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You want to get x alone on one side. How can you do that? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i can do that by subtracting i think @Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hm no because x is not added to 44. it's multiplied.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh sorry i struggle a lot at math.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it's ok! me too lol. So since it's multiplied, we're going to divide.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2divide both sides by 44 x=432/44

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(we got rid of the 44 on the left side by dividing it by 44!)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol and okay what are we multiplying?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so what does that equal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got on my calculator 9.8 idk how.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That's exactly correct :) good job!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so 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?)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If (4^4)x = 4^32, what is the value of x? im very sorry i wrote the equation wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is this a different question?

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok :) first calculate 4^4

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok. \[4^4\] = 4 * 4 * 4 *4

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because it's 4, 4 times. so what does 4 * 4* 4*4 = ?

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(sorry, working on my own math too :)) so here we have 4*4 = 16 16*4= ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh im sorry if im disturbing you and is it 16X4 or 16 to the 4 power?

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no you're all good 16 x 4

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, 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 = ?

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2perfect, and that's your answer for 4^4 because now you've multiplied 4 four times. make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(4^4)x = 4^32 now we have 256x=4^32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2wait! this stil has to be simplified more :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2want to finish solving it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh sorry i didnt know and yes please

Babynini
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it's ok. so 256x=4^32

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now doing 4^32 would be a pain without a calculator. do you have a scientific calc?

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hrm ok, that's fine :)

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2let's see what we can do then, give me a moment :)

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2let'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have to divide both sides

Babynini
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we have \[x=\frac{ 4^{32} }{ 4^4 }\]

Babynini

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that can be simplified more but i'm not sure how :/
