3(2^(2x+1)+5(2^(-x) )= 31

What I did first was to take the logarithim on both sides of the equation.... to solve for x. But that apparantly isn't a "logical" way to proceed. Any advice?

But then you start asking about solving for x- which has nothing to do with finding a domain. If that really is the problem, dp what Eighty suggested: let t= e

Hint: e
