# Thread: Proving exponential functions are identical

1. ## Proving exponential functions are identical

Please help me prove these two exponential equations are the same.
Thank you!

a) y = 2(2^3x-2)
b) y = 2^(3x-1)

2. $2 \cdot 2^{3x-2} = 2^{1 + (3x-2)} = 2^{3x-1}$

3. Great, thanks..you cleared that up for me
