calculating value from exponent
hi, if there is an expression :
$x^{c*x+1}=y$
and if we know the values of c and y , then how can we calculate x ?
thanks.

no simple algebraic manipulation will allow you to solve for x ... you'll need to use technology to calculate the value of x for given values of c and y
