8-97.

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 ✎a. 3 =

*a · b*^{0}

75 =*a · b*^{2}b. 18 =

*a · b*^{2}

54 =*a · b*^{3}

What is *b*^{0}?

Use value of *a* from first equation to solve for *b* in the second, 75 = 3 *b*^{2}.

Review problem 8-84 from section 8.1.6.

Review what the Equal Value Method is, and remember to isolate *a* first.

*a* = 2, *b* = 3
