Okay, this one I don't even know how to start. I really have given this a go for a few days now, but I just am not grasping something. I think my memory has failed me with logarithms.
I know 4(16)=64, but that shouldn't fit with this problem. It seems to be more of a distraction. I know that is the same as , but I can't quite think of what to do since we have exponents on both sides of the equation.
Any help on getting started would be appreciated.
Ahh, yes. That is looking familiar now. So I would set the exponents equal to each other and solve, since they both have the same base? (can't remember what that's called)
Before I do that, however, I am curious about how you went from this step to the next, on the left side. Adding one in the exponent is the same as multiplying it by 4?
