Sum of All Real 'x'

  1. Apr 1, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find the sum of all real x such that

    ((2^x)-4)^3 + ((4^x)-2)^3=((4^x)+(2^3)-6)^3

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution


    This equation doesnt help as the LHS is a sum of two cubes.

    Is it wise to convert all fours and sixes as multiples of 2???

    Please help me to get a start at least.

    It is also true that a^3+ b^3= (a+ b)(a^2- ab+ b^2).
