## Homework Statement

Hi

I am having trouble solving for y for the following equation:

e^(y) = y^(2) - 2

## Homework Equations

ln(x)^(y) = y*ln(x)

ln(e^(y)) = y

ln(2) = 1

## The Attempt at a Solution

My attempt:

e^(y) = y^(2) -2

ln(e^(y)) = ln(y^(2)) - ln(2)

y = 2*ln(y) - 1

y - 2*ln(y) + 1 = 0 <--- stuck here

Any help would be appreciated
