okay doing logarithms and exponentials, i have to solve for x
im having trouble with 2 of these problems
1. e^4x - e^2x - 30 = 0
i know i have to use the quadratic formula for this one and it was going well until i tried to factor them all out. i got to here: (e^2x)^2 - e^2x - 30 = 0
how do i factor them out?
2. log(4x) - log(12+ square root of x) = 2
to me that just looked flat out intimidating =/
