solve for x

I know I am supposed to solve for log3x first and then use the fact that if log ax=b, then x=a^b but the answers don't jive with the book. The first one I tried I got 9/7log3^8=x then I came up with 72/7log3, the three is the base.

I know this is not correct, could you explain so I can understand.

Thank you!
