    Unhappy College Algebra

    solve following equations...

    2ln3x=8

    9.5e^.005x=19

    10^x^2=10^3x-2

    6^x+1=4^2x-1

    lnx=3lnx=4

    log3 (1-x)=1

    log(x+1) + log(x-1)=log3

    1. Please do not post any more than 2 questions per thread. For the purposes of reading the answers given, the thread can become congested and difficult to keep track of. If you have more than 2 questions, create new threads for them (making sure not to post any more than 2 per thread). You are also more likely to get answers in a more timely manner.

    2. Please show some effort. What have you tried? Exactly where are you getting stuck?

    Here are some hints. See if you can continue.
    2ln3x=8
    \ln(3x)=4

    \Rightarrow 3x = e^{\text ?}

    9.5e^.005x=19
    e^{0.005x}=2

    \Rightarrow 0.005x = \ln(\text ?)

    10^x^2=10^3x-2
    10^{x^2}=10^{3x-2}

    \Rightarrow x^2=3x-2

    6^x+1=4^2x-1
    I assume this means:
    6^{x+1}=4^{2x-1}

    \Rightarrow (x+1)\log 6 = (2x-1)\log 4 (where the log is to any base you like)
    Collect like terms to solve for x in the usual way.

    lnx=3lnx=4
    Doesn't make sense.

    log3 (1-x)=1
    Does this mean:
    \log_3 (1-x)=1?
    If so:
    1-x = 3^1

    \Rightarrow \text ?
    log(x+1) + log(x-1)=log3
    \log(x+1)(x-1)= \log 3

    \Rightarrow \text ?
