### Subject: Pre-Algebra

Solve: 2^4

This problem is telling you to multiply 2 by itself 4 times which can be written 2*2*2*2 which equals 16 so 2^4 = 16.

### Subject: Basic Math

Solve: 69 / 3

To solve this problem, you need to divide 69 by 3. First, divide 6 by 3 which equals 2 because 3 * 2 = 6. Then divide 9 by 3 which is 3 since 3 * 3 equals 9. Therefore, the answer is 23.

### Subject: Algebra

Solve: (x-3)/5 = (x+3)/6

This is a linear equation problem and is solved by cross-multiplying to find the value of x. First, set up the linear equation as 5 * (x+3) = 6 * (x-3) (cross-multiply the denominator of the first problem and numerator of the second problem and vice versa). Then, multiply everything in the first set of parentheses by 5 and the second set of parentheses by 6 so you end up with 5x+15 = 6x - 18. You want to get the variable x on one side of the equal sign so subtract 5x from both sides and you end up with 15 = x - 18. Next, you want the variable x by itself so add 18 to both sides and you get 33 = x. Therefore, the answer is x = 33. To check the answer, input 33 for the x values in the problem and you will get 6 = 6 which is a true statement.
