(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

3^x=12x-9

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I really have no clue how to solve this one algebraically.

I graphed the two functions on a calculator and found the points of intersection

the answers are 3 and 1

Can someone show me how to solve this problem algebraically, step by step?

I believe you use logs?

thanks
