7-74.

Find values of *a* and *b* that make each system of equations true (i.e., solve each system). Be sure to show your work or explain your thinking clearly.

Remember that

*b*^{0}= 1.You can use this fact to make the first equation 6 =

*a*, and then substitute 6 for*a*in the second equation.Solve for

*b*.24 = 6

*b*^{2}

*a*= 2,*b*= 4
