Solve the exponential equation.

*Note*: This applet is dynamic. The right side of the equation generates different values each time a new base is entered.- Find a common base for both sides of the equation, if one exists.
- Rewrite the equation so that both sides have the same base.
- Solve for
*x*by setting the exponents equal to each other. - Check your answer.
