I've reviewed my logarithmic rules, but I cannot get to the right solution. I should be trying to get one e^x on each side so that I can take the ln of both sides and end up with a simple algebraic process to solve.
The Attempt at a Solution
This is as far as I get without running into my problem:
I guess here I could take the ln of both sides, but I guess I'm confused about what happens to the x^2, and to the 5.
Ahh, Thanks for the reminder. Don't want to bump this any more.
Took ln of both sides, ended with:
Is that the correct way to that solution?
