Can anyone help me solve this basic equation (including the steps). I know the answer, I just don't know how to get there. 5^9x+2 = (1/25)^2x-9 Excuse the format, don't know how to do exponents on this forum. Thanks a lot.

I assume the question is Note that so the RHS becomes If two bases are the same then their exponents must be the same: . Solve for x
Oh wow, that was so simple. I got it now, thanks a lot.
