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 · b0
75 = a · b2
b. 18 = a · b2
54 = a · b3
What is b0?
Use value of a from first equation to solve for b in the second, 75 = 3 b2.
