1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data (3.4)^2x+3 = 8.5. Solve for x 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution 3.4^2x = 8.5/3.4^3 ( divide the equation by 3.4^3. This bit i am not sure about) 2xlog3.4 = log (8.5/3.4^3 x = log (8.5)- 3log(3.4) / 2 log (3.4) =0.929-1.594/1.063 x = -0.626 This seems to work out when i plug it in to the original equation. Is there an insert equation icon on the template. Can`t find it!
