How do I do this question?
Given that y=2^x, find expressions in terms of y for:
1) 2^(x+2)
2) 2^(3-x)
Recall that: a^{x+y}=a^xa^y and a^{x-y}=\dfrac{a^x}{a^y}
How does this help?

2^{x+2}=2^x \times 2^2=...

2^{3-x}=\frac{2^3}{2^x}=...

Hello bob! I know I've kept you waiting for 7 years, but I have finally cracked the code!!!So basically 2^(x 2) can be broken down to (y)x(2^2) which equals to 4y. And part (ii) can be denoted as (2^3)x(-y) which equals to -8y, but you can write it as 8/y for a positive answer.Hope this helps you out, you're probably out of school and doing a job by now though lol! Enjoy!
