4x-2  = 2x

 

The idea here is to make the bases equal  and then solve for the exponents

 

(22)x-2  = 2x

 

(2)[2(x-2)]  = 2x

 

(2)2x - 4  = 2x

 

The bases are the same....solve for the exponents

 

2x - 4  = x        add 4 to both sides.....subtract x from both sides

 

x  =  4

 

 

cool cool cool
