    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    right now i have to solve a certain problem and in order to do so I need to know how to change ln(5y)=(x-3)^-1+C into a y= format where only y is on the left and x is on the right Any help is very appreciated, thanks

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I really have no idea how to do this. Please explain the process to me thanks.

    It's quite simple actually. If [itex]f(x)=\ln(x)[/itex] then [itex]f^{-1}(x)=e^x[/itex]. That's all you need.
