Solving Exponential Equations

  1. Feb 12, 2005 #1
    There is one problem that I can't seem to figure out how to do, and I was wondering if someone could help me. Problem: 5(2)^3x - 4 = 13 . Most exponential equations I can solve, but its the power of 3x thats messing me up.

    As always, the first question is "What have you tried so far ?", so that we can see exactly where you need help. :)

    And another question:How do u usually solve exponential equations and why do you think that the method wouldn't apply here...?
