How To: Given an exponential equation with unlike bases, use the one-to-one property to solve it Rewrite each side in the equation as a power with a common base. Use the rules of exponents to simplify, if necessary, so that the resulting equation has the form bS = bT b S = b T. Use the one-to-one property to set the exponents equal to each other. Solve the resulting equation, S = T, for the unknown.
