8x-1 = 9x+3
Solve for x.
I'm guessing since they're both equal, if I multiply them it will just be the same as squaring one side.
We have (8x-1)(9x+3)=72x^2+2x-3
ANNNNND I don't know what to do next. I tried equating x2+2x-3 = 2 since 72x^2+2x-3 = a2 where a is the base. Solving for x2+2x-5=0, I got:
How do I solve this? I need to find the base.
