\[\begin{align} 2^x=7\\&\implies 2^{2x}=7^2\\&\implies 2^{2x+5}=7^2\cdot 2^5=1568 \end{align}\] – Rishabh Cool · 1 year, 5 months ago

@Rishabh Cool – How come the \(2^x = 7 \) becomes \(2^{2x} = 7^2\)? – Cedie Camomot · 1 year, 5 months ago

@Cedie Camomot – Square both sides ... \[(2^x)^2=7^2\] – Rishabh Cool · 1 year, 5 months ago

@Rishabh Cool – Thanks! If the question change how to find the value of \(x\)? – Cedie Camomot · 1 year, 5 months ago

@Cedie Camomot – Take log :- \[2^x=7\\\implies \log_2 2^x=\log_2 7\\ \implies x=\log_2 7\] – Rishabh Cool · 1 year, 5 months ago
