Solving Exponential Equations with Like Bases

Additional Resources:

In this lesson, we will learn how to solve exponential equations with like bases. To do this, we can use a simple rule that tells us: if ay = ax, then x = y (a is greater than 0 and a is not equal to 1). So basically, if we have like bases, we can set the exponents equal to each other and solve the resulting equation.
