#1:

This is basically a quadratic. To see it more easily, let .

Then our quadratic becomes:

Factor to solve for .

__________

#2: Is this your question:

If so, try to get everything under the same base using your exponent laws:

Since the bases are equal, then the exponents should be equal, i.e. - Dec 17th 2008, 09:28 PMGrandadIndices and logs
Hi -

So the equation can be re-writtenL

Substitute to get a quadratic in . Solve and then use to find .
