    Solving a log equation with (3) different bases

    Thanks! That is disappointing, this site kept saying "The algebraic solution is too difficult" so I thought there definitely has to be one ;p, but I guess not. What do you mean by finite number of standard functions? What about an infinite number?

    Solving a log equation with (3) different bases

    I used to think I was master of any high school math course until I came across this log equation in a calculus textbook. \log_{2}x + \log_{5}(2x+1) = \ln x I use the change of base to convert everything to one base and then I get down to: (2x+1)^{\ln2} = x^{\ln2\ln5 - \ln5} I have no...

    Hello, I did an experiment to try and clean copper pennies with acids like lemon juice and vinegar. When they are dipped in only lemon juice, nothing happens. However, when you add salt, the effect is almost instantaneous. Why does adding salt to lemon juice (citric acid?) make it a much...
