Hey guys,

r=3^(n+2) , then in terms of r, 9^n=

a - r^2/81
b - r^2/9
c - r^2
d - r/3
e - r

$$r=3^{(n+2)}$$ --> $$r=3^{n}*3^2$$ --> $$3^n=\frac{r}{9}$$ --> square both sides: $$(3^n)^2=3^{2n}=9^n=\frac{r^2}{81}$$.

Answer: A.

Questions in terms of variables can be easily solved by plugging in some values: Say n = 0
r = 3^2 = 9
and you need the value of 9^n which is 9^0 = 1

So when you put r = 9 in the options, you should get 1. Only option (A) satisfies.

Answer (A)
