How to reduce exponential equation to quadratic equation form?

I was teaching a class and came across a question related to quadratic equations. Question was about reducing given exponential equation to quadratic form and solve by factorization later. I would have solved that if bases were same or I could manipulate any of side in term of power of other. But it was impossible to write one side in term of power of other.
Now I' like to know if there is any method to reduce such equations to quadratic ones.?
