Solve for x: (9/7)log base 2 of x = -9

OpenStudy (anonymous):

First get the log function by itself: $\frac {7}{9}*\frac {9}{7} *\log_{2}(x)=\frac{-9}{1}*\frac {7}{9}$

OpenStudy (lgg23):

i got it. the answer is 1/128

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Good. Out of curiousity did you use a calculator or convert to base ten logs first?

OpenStudy (lgg23):

Since the problem can be translated to $\log_{2} x^{9/7}=9$. I changed it to exponential form and got $2^{9} = x^{9/7}$

OpenStudy (lgg23):

then i got rid of the exponents by raising them to the reciprocal of that 9/7 and got (2^-7)=x and simplified

Very nice - I like your method more. :-)

OpenStudy (lgg23):

Thank you.

Just as it should be solved, exploit those log rules!! ;)
