Hi! My problem is:
(x)(2^x) = 1
How do I solve for x? I tried using logarithms like this:
log(x) + x*log(2) = log(1)
but then I have the first x stuck inside a log. Help please!

What you have tried is not correct.
You cannot solve this using conventional algebra.
You should try a numerical method.
Do you mean I should just use my graphing calculator? I get about the same when I do that. Just out of curiosity, what kind of algebra would you use to do this?
The conventional algebra I speak of is using inverse operations to isolate x.
The other types of algebra (i.e. abstract algebra) aren't related to achieving this result.
