2.1, 6.7 Exponential Equations OBJ:  To solve an exponential equation  To solve an exponential equation using properties of rational number exponents

DEF:  Exponential Equation Get same bases; set exponents = EX: 5  8 x = 16 P158 2 3x = 2 4 3x = 4 x = 4/3 EX:  9 x = 27 3 2x = 3 3 2x = 3 x = 3/2 EX:  (1/3) x = 9 3 -x = 3 2 -x = 2 x = -2 EX:  (3/4) x = 16/9 (3/4) x = (3/4) -2 x = -2

EX: 6  (5) 4x + 1 = 125 P 33 (5) 4x + 1 = 5 3 4x + 1 = 3 x = 1/2 EX:  (3) 2x + 4 = 243 3 2x + 4 = 3 5 2x + 4 = 5 x = 1/2 EX:  (8) 4z = (4) z + 1 (2 3)4z = (2 2) z + 1 12 z = 2z + 2 10z = 2 z = 1/5 EX:  (64) t = (32) 1 - t (2 6 ) t = (2 5 ) 1- t 6 t = 5 – 5t t = 5/11

EX:  625 –x = 125 3 x (5 4 ) –x = (5 3 ) 3x - 4x = 9x 0 = 13x 0 = x EX:  125 3 – a = 25 a (5 3 ) 3 – a = (5 2 ) a 9 – 3a = 2a 9 = 5a 9/5 = a EX:  (1/27) – 2 p =(3) p+3 (3 - 3 ) – 2 p = (3) p+3 6p = p + 3 5p = 3 p = 3/5 EX:  2 – h = (1/8) 1 – h 2 – h = (2 - 3 ) 1 – h - h = - 3 + 3h - 4h = - 3 h = 3/4 EX:  (1/3) – x = (1/9) x + 1 (1/3) – x = [(1/3) 2 ] x + 1 -x = 2x + 2 -3x = 2 x = -2/3 EX:  2 –  x  = 1/8 2 –  x  = 2 -3 -  x  = -3  x  = 3 x = 3, -3
