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

Solve the following equation:

[tex]e^{2x}=3x^2[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I can find an approximate solution with a graphing calculator easily, but I am interested how you would find the exact solution.

I can take the natural log of both sides and wind up with.

[tex]2x=\ln{3x^2}[/tex]

I'm not sure how I could proceed from here to get it into terms of x.

Would perhaps another method be better?
