4. If x 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 and x y 2 = 1 27 , solve for x and y . Rearrange the second equation. x y 2 = 1 27 x = y 2 27 Sub x = y 2 27 into the first equation. x 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 y 2 27 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 ( y 2 ) 3 27 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 ( y 6 ) (3 3 ) 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 ( y 6 ) 3 9 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 y 11 = 3 9 · 2 11 · 3 13 y 11 = 2 11 · 3 22 y 11 = (2 · 3 2 ) 11 y = 2 · 3 2 = 18 Sub y = 2 · 3 2 into the second equation. x y 2 = 1 27 x = y 2 27 x = (2 · 3 2 ) 2 27 x = 2 2 · 3 4 3 3

x = 2 2 · 3 4 - 3 x = 2 2 · 3 1 = 12 5. Solve for x : 2 8 x = 16 2 2 2 (2 3 ) x = (2 4 ) 2 2 2 2 3 x = 2 4 · 2 2 2 3 x = 4 · 2 2 2 3 x = 2 2 · 2 2 2 3 x = 2 4 3 x = 4 x = 3 4 If you decided not to use the corrected version, here is that solution: 2 8 x = 16 2 x 2 (2 3 ) x = (2 4 ) 2 x 2 2 3 x = 2 4 · 2 x 2 3 x = 4 · 2 x 2 3 x = 2 2 · 2 x 2 3 x = 2 2+ x 3 x = 2 + x 2 x = 2 x = 1 6.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
