**How to solve equalities with exponents using bases**Hayley Harding**1. Find a common base.**• 96x+3 = 1/27 • The common base here is three.**2. Simplify using that base.**• 96x+3= 1/27 • Now looks like this: • (32)6x+3 = 3-3**3. Simplify your exponents.**• To do this, multiply the exponents. • (32)6x+3 = 3-3 • Becomes • 312x+6= 3-3**4. Eliminate the bases.**• 312x+6 = 3-3**5. Now, work with the exponents.**• 12x+6 = -3 -6 -6 • 12x = -9 12 12 X =-9/12 OR -¾
