Can someone tell em if these two equations are the same

x = A[(s/δ)]^α/(1-α)

And

x = A[(δ/sA)^(1/(α-1))]^α

Thnaks

Edit: I can not seem to get TEX functions to work, sorry

Without TEX, it's hard to figure out what your functions are. I'm guessing:

and

To figure out if they're the same function, you use algebraic methods to put each in some standard form. The first one is:

The second one is:

So the answer is no, assuming I interpreted the functions correctly. If not, that's the general idea, so hopefully you can do it with the correct functions.
