Rewrite as an equation.

Rewrite <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><msub><mi>log</mi><mrow><mn>2</mn></mrow></msub><mrow><mo>(</mo><mn>16</mn><mo>)</mo></mrow><mo>=</mo><mi>x</mi></mstyle></math> in exponential form using the definition of a logarithm. If <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mi>x</mi></mstyle></math> and <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mi>b</mi></mstyle></math> are positive real numbers and <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mi>b</mi></mstyle></math> does not equal <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>1</mn></mstyle></math> , then <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><msub><mi>log</mi><mrow><mi>b</mi></mrow></msub><mrow><mo>(</mo><mi>x</mi><mo>)</mo></mrow><mo>=</mo><mi>y</mi></mstyle></math> is equivalent to <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><msup><mrow><mi>b</mi></mrow><mrow><mi>y</mi></mrow></msup><mo>=</mo><mi>x</mi></mstyle></math> .

Create equivalent expressions in the equation that all have equal bases.

Since the bases are the same, the two expressions are only equal if the exponents are also equal.

The variable <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mi>x</mi></mstyle></math> is equal to <math><mstyle displaystyle="true"><mn>4</mn></mstyle></math> .
