1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am looking for a way to solve the equation e^x + x = c, with c being some constant. I know that I could get an answer from graphing, but I would like to know how to solve an equation like this algebraically. How is this possible? 2. Relevant equations None. 3. The attempt at a solution I have tried manipulating the equation in many ways, but nothing has led to a solution.
