i have no idea if im doing this correct 400 = (1 - e^-.2t ln400 = -.2tln(500(1- e) .2t = ln(500(1 - e) ln(400) im stuck here, any help would be great im trying to solve for T which indicates times in the problem

there shpould be a negative(-) before the .2 but otherwise yes
no, typed the equation wrong here is the correct one 400 = 500(1-e^ -.2t) solve for t
