Hello all, I'm new to the forums (signed up to ask this question- this isn't a homework question). My friend gave me this equation a while back and all of my math teachers that I've asked have been stumped. I'm currently a sophomore in high school with no calculus experience (currently Algebra 2 honors), so this problem threw me off. If you can find a solution, it'd be great if you could explain to me how you came about it in simple (if possible) explanation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem:

x(e^x) = 3

Solve for x

Thanks a lot guys!
