To simplify calculations,

for (1), begin by factorising 35 to write it as a multiple of the single-digit terms, 5 and 7, may be simpler ways though.

For (2), 9 is a power of 3, 4 is a power of 2 and 6 is a multiple of 3 and 2.

For (3), 4 and 8 are powers of 2, 12 is a multiple of 2, but this is a quadratic in disguise. - Jan 12th 2010, 06:05 AMx-mather
I understand what you said but what to do after it?

Well, for (1)

simplest is to write

If x=0, then

However, I doubt that this is the way you are expected to solve,

since this answer is by inspection,

it is not a derived solution. - Jan 12th 2010, 07:01 AMArchie Meade

These are equal if x=0 - Jan 12th 2010, 07:16 AMOloria
The third is really simple.

Don't forget to find a domain of the function.

2. Mulitply two sides of the equation throughout 6.

After simple transformation:

If I didn't make a mistake to give a result you need to use a logarithm. - Jan 12th 2010, 07:34 AMSoroban
