## Homework Statement

(3.4)^2x+3 = 8.5. Solve for x

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

3.4^2x = 8.5/3.4^3 ( divide the equation by 3.4^3. This bit i am not sure about)

2xlog3.4 = log (8.5/3.4^3

x = log (8.5)- 3log(3.4) / 2 log (3.4)

=0.929-1.594/1.063

x = -0.626

This seems to work out when i plug it into the original equation.

Is there an insert equation icon on the template. Can`t find it!
