9a^3b^4= (3a^2b^2)(?) find the missing factor

If we have a 9 on the left and a 3 on the right, the right needs to be squared.
If we have b^4 on the left and b^2 on the right, the right needs to be squared.
Since the a value on the left is squared, that should be a^4 on the left.

If not, we get a^6 = a^4 when both sides are squared, and this would say a = 1,
but I don't think this is what it is suppose to be.
