    Unhappy exponents equation help!

    4 (5^ {-3x+2}) = 100

    Please help, I have no idea how to solve this. I have some basis of exponent rules, but what do I do? Do I have to factor?

    4 (5^{-3x+2}) = 100

    divide both sides by 4 ...

    5^{-3x+2} = 25

    5^{-3x+2} = 5^2

    finish it.
