The text wants me to find x using a graph, but since I don't like taking my sweet time building one so accurate to find an answer to one decimal place, I rather find x without the graph.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is it:

e^x = x^10

This isn't important or anything, but I figured that I can use some practice. I was thinking of using logs, and then switch the bases so that they are all the same (e or 10).

Is this the way to go?

Don't jump out with an answer or that blows everything. I would like to give it a shot.

I'll be gone to school for the next 12-14 hours, so I'll probably have it by tonight. I might also hop on a computer at school if they aren't so busy.

Thanks for any help.

Note: I know graphs are important, and I build rough ones all the time. I normally visualize graphs using simple translation rules, and odd/even functions. Building one so details to find x to one decimal place is ridiculous.

Note: If you want to blow it and jump out with an answer, don't bother because I can just look at the back of the text for that.
