If $F(a, b, c, d) = a^b + c ^ d$, what is the value of $b$ such that $F(4, b, 2, 3) = 12$?

F(a, b, c, d)  =  ab + cd        Replace  a  with  4  ,  c  with  2  ,  and  d  with  3  .

F(4, b, 2, 3)  =  4b + 23

 

F(4, b, 2, 3)  =  12               Replace   F(4, b, 2, 3)   with   4b + 23

4b + 23  =  12                       23  =  8

4b + 8   =  12                       Subtract  8  from both sides of the equation.

4b  =  12 - 8

4b  =  4

4b  =  41

 b  =  1
