In this lesson, we will learn how to solve exponential equations with like bases. To do this, we can use a simple rule that tells us: if a

^{y}= a^{x}, then x = y (a is greater than 0 and a is not equal to 1). So basically, if we have like bases, we can set the exponents equal to each other and solve the resulting equation.Solving Exponential Equations with Like Bases:
