    Are you sure breaking down 7^x^2 is the only way?
    Try cross multiplying it to the other side and observe.

    Is the numerator supposed to be 72x + 3 or 72x + 3 or 72x + 3?

    I suspect that it's the first. If that's what you meant, write it as 7^(2x + 3) so that it is unambiguous.

    And, to be unambiguous, type "7^(x^2)"

    if you mean [itex]7^{x^2}.[/itex]

    Yeah, I meant that
