Youre probably missing the fact that (some of) the x's are exponents? But why not post what youve tried? You want to find the point of intersection so set the equations equal to each other and solve for x.

Do you mean $y = 3 \times 2^x$ and $y = 15 - 2^{x+1}$ ? You can solve these simultaneously .
