(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Basic log question, completely lost! :(

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Prove that y = a(1+b)^t is equivalent to ln y = a+bt

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i'm really confused with how they could possibly be equal.

y = a(1+b)^t

t = ln y/ln a(1+b)

ln y = t x ln (a+b)

ln y = ln (a+b)^t

Could someone please help.
