I'm actually a little upset that I got so focused on one side of the equation that I forgot I could manipulate both sides at once... putting both sides to the negative power of three would certainly solve the equation, but the answer is far from what I got in my little mathematical endeavor. That co...

Thanks jg, I don't remember seeing that equation before, but it does get me a step further. Once I have =b^{(m-n)} Then I can solve the exponent, yes? My situation left me with (\frac{2}{3}-1)=-\frac{1}{3} .033=k^{\frac{-1}{3}} After reading through the whole section I linked again, ...

Hi, I was taking an economics exam today and was faced with the following after a few other simplifications... .033=\frac{k^{\frac{2}{3}}}{k} I was having trouble solving for my capital-labor-ratio (k). Since we were allowed to use our graphing calculator, I put the function into Y= and scrolled unt...
