Solving Exponential Equations Worksheets
What are exponential equations? Solving the exponential equations is a bit of a task because they have exponents on them. Exponents refer to the power which is given to a number, called the base, and it reflects the number of times the base number can be multiplied. It is usually expressed as a raised expression over the number. For example, 32, this means that 3 can be multiplied twice. Basically, there are two methods of solving the exponential equation, one is relatively simple, but it requires a particular form of the exponential equation. While the other method works with a more detailed and complicated approach, it can be a bit messy too. To solve the, you need to have 'equals' sign in the equation so that you compare the two expressions. In other words, you need to have a base and a power that is equal to another base number with power. Consider the following example; 8x = 83 In this example, the equations are comparable. Since bases are the same, the unknown x here is equals to 3. X = 3.
