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

(4x)^(1 + log(base 2) (x)) = 8(x^3)

What is the sum of the values of x that fullfill that equation?

A) 2.5

B) 2.0

C) 1.5

D) 1.0

E) 0.5

2. Relevant equations

Use the exponential equation only and make the lower one (exponented) 1.

3. The attempt at a solution

(4x) = (2 x^(1/2))^2

8(x^3) = (2x)^3

If I insert x = (1/4) to make 4x = 1 it doesn't fulfill the equation..

So does x = (1/2)..

I cannot simplify the exponential equation... Any assistance please?
