2-145.

Solve the following systems of equations. In other words, find values of a and b that make each system true. Be sure to show your work or explain your thinking clearly. Homework Help ✎

1. $2 = a · b^0$
$\frac { 1 } { 2 } = a · b^2$

Anything raised to the zero power is equal to 1. Knowing this, what is a equal to?

$a=2,\ b=\pm \frac {1}{2}$

2. $\frac { 1 } { 2 }= a · b^0$
$2 = a · b^2$

Refer to part (a).
