### Calculator Solves Indicial Equation In The Following Forms

• 4^{2x+1}=5^{2x+2}

• 2^{x+1}=3^{x+5}

• 5^{2x-1}=5^{x-7}

• 2^{x+1}=3^{2x-5}

## Steps to Solve Indicial Equation

#### Step 1:

• Start by taking the logarithm of both sides of the equation. Since the given equation has different bases, you can use the logarithmic identity

• log_b(a^c) = c * log_b(a).

• Applying this identity, we get:

• log_4(4^{x-1}) = log_4(2^{2x+1})

#### Step 2:

• Simplify the logarithms using the power rule of logarithms. The power rule states that log_b(a^c) = c * log_b(a).

• Applying this rule, we have:

• (x-1) log_4(4) = (2x+1) log_4(2)

• Simplifying further:

• (x-1) = (2x+1) log_4(2)

#### Step 3:

• Expand the logarithm base to base 10. Using the change of base formula, we can rewrite the equation as:

• (x-1) = (2x+1) log_2(4)/log_2(10)

• Since log_2(4) = 2 and log_2(10) is a constant value, we can substitute these values into the equation:

• (x-1) = (2x+1) (2/ log_2(10))

#### Step 4:

• Solve for x. Distribute the (2/ log_2(10)) term:

• (x-1) = (4/ log_2(10))x + (2/ log_2(10))

• Rearrange the equation to solve for x

• (x - (4/ log_2(10))x) = 1 + (2/ log_2(10))

• Simplify

• (x(1 - 4/ log_2(10))) = (1 + 2/ log_2(10))

• Combine like terms

• x(1 - 4/ log_2(10)) = (log_2(10) + 2)/ log_2(10)

• x = (log_2(10) + 2)/ (log_2(10) - 4/ log_2(10))

#### Step 5:

• Using a calculator, we can evaluate log(2):
log(2) ≈ 0.3

• Substitute this value below to resolve for x

• (x-1) = (4/ log_2(10))x + (2/ log_2(10))
