Actually, I am trying to use what I have learned on school to something else

3*10^x = 1.73*10^14

lga^x = xlga

10^x = (1.73 * 10^14)/3

10^x = 5.767 * 10^13

xlg10 = 13lg(57.67)

x=13lg(57.67)

x=22.89

:\

3 * 10^22.89 = 1.73 * 10^14 is certainly not correct..

What am I doing wrong?

I tried this too:

x=5.767 * 13lg(10)

x=5.767 * 13

x = 74.971

And that is even more incorrect!

**1. Homework Statement**3*10^x = 1.73*10^14

**2. Homework Equations**lga^x = xlga

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**10^x = (1.73 * 10^14)/3

10^x = 5.767 * 10^13

xlg10 = 13lg(57.67)

x=13lg(57.67)

x=22.89
