# Math Help - E problem

1. ## E problem

Must find x

Ae^Bx = e^Cx

Where A,B,C are constants

My work:

lnA + Bx = Cx

lnA / (C - B) = x

I am not confident in this answer

2. I get

$Ae^{Bx} = e^{Cx}$

$\ln (Ae^{Bx}) = \ln (e^{Cx})$

$\ln (A) +\ln (e^{Bx})= \ln (e^{Cx})$

$\ln (A) +Bx= Cx$

$\ln (A) = Cx-Bx$

$\ln (A) = x(C-B)$

$\frac{\ln (A)}{C-B} = x$

$x=\frac{\ln (A)}{C-B}$

Same as you, with are either both right or both wrong!

3. Let me try

$Ae^{Bx} = e^{Cx}$

$\ln{(Ae^{Bx})} = \ln{(e^{Cx})}$

$\ln{(A)} + \ln{(e^{Bx})} = \ln{(e^{Cx})}$

$\ln{(A)} + Bx = Cx$

$\ln{(A)} = Cx - Bx$

$\ln{(A)} = x(C - B)$

$\frac{\ln{(A)}}{C - B} = x$

$x = \frac{\ln{(A)}}{C - B}$

Wolfram says so too. Looks like this is the answer

EDIT : Strange, I did exactly the same steps as Pickslides and in the same order ... but I didn't look at all.

4. Thank you, pickslides and Bacterius, I appreciate the confirmation
