Re: simple, yet insane!....for me at least

Since you're going to be asked at some point, I might as well do it...

What have you done so far? Can you write each factor in #5 as a power of 2?
How can you get the factors in #6 that aren't 6 to be 6?

Hi;

for #5 the answer is 2^(2n-4)







for # 6 the answer is 6^(3x)

Hi peterle1;

Glad to help! That you understood the methods is even better. Working with exponents is really a lot of fun.
