# Exponential Equations

Exponential equations come in two versions: ones where the bases are the same and ones where the bases are different. We're going to cover both types in the lectures below. Both types rely on using the third logarithm property

$$\log_b x^m = m\log_bx$$as a way to get variables out of the exponents and make them into coefficients.

One of the more useful tools that we get from logarithms is the ability to take something out of the exponent of an expression and turn it into a coefficient. This property is the key component in solving exponential equations where the two bases are different.

In this lecture, we're going to look at the process for solving exponential equations where the base of the exponent parts are the same.
