1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The solution of 2^(2x+3) = 2^(x+1) + 3 can be expressed in the form of: a + log2b where a, b belong to the set of complex numbers. 3. The attempt at a solution (2^3)(2^x)^2 = 2^(x+1) + 3 [8((2^x)^2)] - [2(2^x)] - 3 = 0 Solving the above quadratic for 2^x, I found that 2^x = 3/4 and -1/2. I can solve for x, but for simplicity's sake, I haven't yet. From here, I need to put x into the above log form.
