4x = 64

Do you calculate x in your head, however that works?

Note that  4  = 2^2

 

And 64  = 2^6

 

So...we have 

 

4^x  = 64

 

(2^2)^x  = 2^6

 

2^(2x)  = 2^6

 

Since the bases are the same, we can solve for the exponents

 

2x  =  6    divide both sides by 2

 

x  = 3

 

 

cool cool cool
