Define \(E(a,b,c) = a \cdot b^2 + c\). What value of a is the solution to the equation \(E(a,4,5) = E(a,6,7)\)?

We have that

 

a*(4)^2 + 5  = a*(6)^2 + 7     simplify

 

16a + 5  =  36a + 7      subtract  7, 16a from both side

 

-2  =  20a         divide both sides by 20

 

-2/20  = a  =  -1/10
