1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Solve the equation: (1/9)^m = 81^m + 4 2. Relevant 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 3. 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.
