To solve exponential equations by making the bases the same, rewrite each side of the equation to have the same base. Adjust the exponents so the bases match. Once the bases are identical, set the exponents equal to each other and solve for the variable. This method simplifies the process and ensures you find the correct solution by working with matching bases. The worksheet for solving exponential equations by making the bases the same provides practice problems for mastering this method.
