Here's 2 I couldn't get.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

8^{log27}

log_{3}x^{2}= log_{4}8^{1/2}

Solve for x

For the first one I thought I should solve what's in the exponent first and then solve 8 to that power, but I can't figure out what to do with the exponent.

I'm even more clueless on the second one/ The bases are different, and I can't out what to do with the x^{2}and 8^{1/2}

Can someone please explain this to me? What properties should I use to solve these problems?

I'm supposed to do these without a calculator, and that's what I'm trying to do.
