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. Homework Help ✎6 =

*a · b*^{0 }

24 =*a · b*^{2}32 =

*a · b*^{2}

128 =*a · b*^{3}

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
