## Homework Statement

Solve the equation:

(1/9)^m = 81^m + 4

## Homework Equations

I know how to do a similar equation:

9^2p = 27^p-1

3^4p = 3^3p-1

cancel out the 3's because the base is the same.

4p = 3p-1

-3p -3p

1p = -1

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know how to do ones like that but when it comes to this I start to struggle with fractions. :'(.

I'm totally lost and cant even make an attempt to this equation. I'm not asking for the answer but just a maybe the first step or something to get me on the right path.
