## Homework Statement

I hope everyone is having a great day. The equation I am working with at the moment is:

(1+ (.2/x))^(x) = 1.21.

1.21 represents the final value, whereas 1 is the present value. I am trying to solve for x, which represents the number of periods necessary for the entity to grow from 1 to 1.21. I am a little stuck on the algebraic manipulations. If anyone could help that would be awesome, thanks!

I have attempted rooting the entire expression, as well as using the "e" and "ln" functions, but I am still having trouble isolating x.
