(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Solve the simultanious equations

[tex] 2log_2y = log_43 + log_2x [/tex]

[tex]3^y = 9^x [/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex] 3^y = (3^2)^x [/tex]

[tex] y = 2x [/tex]

[tex]2log_2 x + 2log_2 2 = log_2 \sqrt{3} + log_2 x[/tex]

[tex]log_2 x = log_2 \frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}[/tex]

No idea what to do from where, what does x equals?
