1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Solve the equation: 2^x multiplied by 4^(x + 5) = 4^(2x - 1) 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution 2^x multiplied by 2^2(x+5)=2^2(2x-1) x(2x+10)=4x-2 2x^2+10x=4x-2 and that's as far as i could get before I was completely stuck. But this could be completely wrong.
