I can simply do the problem by guess checking but because it is taking far too long, what is the simplest way to do these problems? Examples 27^4x = 9^x+1 Thanks~

Examples 27^4x = 9^x+1 Thanks~ get both bases in terms of the same base. i assume you mean, ?....use parentheses! you should have typed 27^(4x) = 9^(x + 1) if that is the case note that and so we have: can you take it from here?
