Here is a quick video on how to solve for exponents.
(Phys.org) —A computer science professor at Amherst College who recently devised and conducted experiments to test the speed of a quantum computing system against conventional computing methods will soon be presenting a paper with her verdict: quantum computing is, “in some cases, really, really fast.”
I would first solve the equations for x,y and z separately. Then label 2.6, 2.84 and 4.38 by a,b,c (so that in the end you get an exponent u^f, where f is entirely in terms of a,b,c – this avoids mid calculation rounding errors) and substitute x,y,z into …

Someone asked if we could “do something fun”, which annoys me to no end, but after practicing solving systems for the last couple of days, I agreed that something fun was in order.
Q: Solve for x: 22x + 2x+2 – 12 = 0. A: The first thing we need to notice (from practice and experience) is that we can re-write this like so using our knowledge / rules of exponents : (2x)2 + 22*2x – 12 = 0
