1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2 - log10 3x = log10(x/12) 2. Relevant equations logab=b log a log(a/b)= log a - log b 3. The attempt at a solution 2 + log10 12= log10 x - x log10 3 Start seems simple but cannot see where to go from here, taking exponentials doesn't seem to help. Not sure what the next steps could be.
