If 3^{x} + 3^{x} + 3^{x} = 3^{16}

What is the value of x?

**Solution: 15**

3^{x} + 3^{x} + 3^{x} can be written as 3^{x}(1+1+1) = 3^{x+1}
Therefore,

3^{x+1} = 3^{16}

Hence x+1 = 16

Or x = 15.

**Solution: 15**

3^{x} + 3^{x} + 3^{x} can be written as 3^{x}(1+1+1) = 3^{x+1}
Therefore,

3^{x+1} = 3^{16}

Hence x+1 = 16

Or x = 15.
