5-28.

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 ✎

3 =

*a · b*^{0}

75 =*a · b*^{2}18 =

*a · b*^{2}

54 =*a · b*^{3}

Anything to the zero power is 1, so *a* = 3.

Solve for *a* in the first equation. Then use substitution.

*b* = 3
