An exponential equation is an equation in which the unknown variable is in the exponent.

To solve an exponential equation, consider:




The exponent rules.

a0 = 1 ·

a1 = a

am · a n = am+n

am : a n = am - n

(am)n = am · n

an · b n = (a · b) n

an : b n = (a : b) n

Solving Exponential Equations:

To solve an unknown that is in the exponent, use logarithms whose base is the base of the power.
