## Homework Statement

It could be the late night, but a problem I've been doing results in a function of the form

[tex] x^{2}exp\left(\frac{-x}{a}\right) = b [/tex]

Where a and b are constants. I'm not sure how to go about solving for x.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've trying taking natural logarithms of both sides but that doesn't seem to help me too much.

Any help would be appreciated. I get the funny feeling I've seen this before.
