(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given the equation

[tex]a log_{10}(x)^{2}+b log_{10}(x) + c x + d = 0[/tex]

solve for [tex]x[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

I don't think the quadratic equation will work here. There are a lot of equations at these two pages:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithmic_identity

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure where to start. I'm not sure that it is possible to solve. If it is possible, and it hasn't been solved before, then it might take some serious hacking.
