Solve for A?!

That makes no sense. - Nov 6th 2009, 02:38 PMBacteriusReply
Tu ne peux pas trouver un résultat sans avoir une question ... quelle est-elle donc ?

You can't find a solution without having a question ... so what is it ? - Nov 6th 2009, 02:48 PMmr fantastic

I'll give a clue (don't have time either) :

Which makes me think this expression might simplify to a constant. - Nov 6th 2009, 02:55 PMDefunkt

Yes you've got to simplify the expression and you will find all the n's evenyuallu cancel out. I got 216 as the value for A.

Start by writing 8 as 2^3 and 4 as 2^2.

Then use your index laws and factorising.

A few hints: (2^3)^(n+1) = 2^(3n+3) = 2^(3n) x 2^3.

Give it a try....I'll check in again later if you need more help. Good luck. - Nov 6th 2009, 02:59 PMDebsta
