An exponential equation is a special type of equation in which each side can be expressed in terms of the same base and can be solved using the property of exponents. It is used to express a graph in many things like radioactive decay, compound interest, population growth etc.
The exponential equation will be of the form
x and y are the variables
a and b are constants.
Question 1: Solve for x: 5 3x – 8 = 252x
53x – 8 = 252x
⇒ x = -8
