Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could anyone give me some ideas on how to solve the following question:

log (x) - x + 2 = 0

or generally

log (x) -x + c = 0 where c is a constant.

I know how to approximate this by graphing but is there any general method(s) to obtain an exact solution for equations of this type?

Thanks!
