We were given the problem 2^x+1=4x from the book and it was asked of us to solve using a table and graphing. I am interested in anyways to solve without either and just using Logs, their properties and algebra. Is it possible?

(I have simplified it down to 2^x-1=x and the answer is easily found with guess and check to be 2 and 1, so I am guessing you have to somehow find x^2-3x+2)

Thanks in advance
