(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Logarithms and Exponents Question

The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex]5^{x}[/tex]=41

The attempt at a solution

Well, I know that one way to figure this out would be that to find a common base for both sides of the equation and then use the known exponent to find the variable. The only thing with this is that there isn't any power that 5 could be taken to, to get 41. Please help...I know this is a simple question but I just can't get it.
