He insists he can also write the number 2 as
Explain why Wei Kit’s expressions all equal 2.
First consider just the exponent: It can be translated as '3 to the power of something that makes 3 become x.'
Now consider the entire expression: 3 is being raised to that 'something' that makes 3 become x...
Consequently, the expression = x.
Use Wei Kit’s method to rewrite the number 9 in two different ways.
Find another way.
Simplify this expression:
Refer to previous hints.
How can Wei Kit rewrite
so that it has a base of 7?
One way: 7 = 7??????
