4-108.

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 ✎

1. $6=a·b^0$
$24=a·b^2$

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 $b$.

$24 = 6b^2$

1. $32=a·b^2$
$128=a·b^3$

$a=2,\ b=4$
