Asked by Milan

Find x x^2 * 3x^-2 = 79?

There must be a typo in this question.

Are you sure that's a * not a + Because x²*3x-²=x²*3/x²= 3 Which isn't possible because 3≠79

Hi Milan - Are you certain that you haven't included any typos in your question? The question that you have given has no solution for x. x^2*3x^-2 =79 can also be written as x^2*(3/x^2)=79 in which the x^2*(3/x^2) simply cancels out to be 3, thus we are left with 3=79 which clearly isn't true. So if that is the correct question you have no solutions for x. But maybe double check for any typos just in case! :)
