First thing I would do is divide both sides by 2. What do you get?
Correct. Now what do you suppose you could do next? You have x raised to a power on both sides of the equation. You'd like to isolate x on one side of the equation. Is there an operation you could do to both sides of the equation that will move you in that direction?
[EDIT]: You should only have divided the coefficients by two, not the exponents.
But another question, I have to determine the regulation of the Power Equation, when the following two points, is on the power equations graph:
(2,4) and (4,32)
How in earth is that done? Or how do I just get started with it?
Thanks a lot in advance, what a great forum!
