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

Solve for x. State restrictions, if necessary.

3^(2x) - 3^(x) -12 = 0

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

2xlog3 - log3 = log 12

x=log 12/log 3

Doesn't work. I have no idea how to do this.. we didn't learn it. The 2x is throwing me off.
