Need a hint

  1. Jan 21, 2009 #1
    At work today one of the biologist came and asked me with help on solving a problem. I need a little hint as I still would like to solve this problem.

    y=1- A(1-e^(-kx)) + mx +b

    A, k, m and b are all constants

    I need to solve for x but it results in getting a -kx-ln(x) = some junk
    From what I can see there isn't a way to do this analytically as I will go in an endless cycle of e's and ln's. I did some research about using iterative method for solving this. What I want to know is from people who do this more often is there a more simple method I could use? Just give me a hint ;) .
