Hi, I have a couple of problems that involve solving exponential equations using logarithms. One of them I got an answer but I'm not positive whether I did it right, and one of them I have no idea...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

3^(4logx)= 5

(4logx)log3=log5

logx=log5/4log3

logx=.698/1.91

logx=.365

10^.365=x

x=2.32

did I do it right?

and then...

5(1.044)^t=t+10

I've gotten this, again, not sure if I'm on the right track...

t-logt=15.89

and even if that is right, where do I go from there?

Oh man...
