OK. That'll do.
Maybe if I re-write it.
Unfortunately, that's where this question unravels because you'd need to go into complex number theory to sort out log(-1).
This sort of thing happens if you make up a question at random. (And you thought it was easy for a teacher to throw some questions together)
That trick makes a lot of sense, but, what about when one number cannot be the same? Like the 6 below:
You now have
Here is a trick to these types whenever the bases are the same
you can ignore them and just solve the equation that you get from the exponents.
I'm not sure. I think I don't understand.
does that help you?
Sometimes I get x = -1/3 so Im not sure whats the right way to do it. :-(
I am solving for X below:
