(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Problem:

I'm trying to figure out how to solve [tex]y=x^x[/tex] for x as a function of y.

Related Equations:

[tex]\log_n a^b=b \ast \log_n a[/tex]

Attempt at Solution:

I took the natural logarithm of both sides and got: [tex]\ln y=x \ast \ln x[/tex] I don't really have any idea where to go from here.
