Solve: 4 + log(base 3)(2 - x) = 9 I got: log(base 3)(2 - x) = 5 2 - x = 3^5 2 - x = 243 -x = 241 x = -241 Don't think this is right can someone help me out? Thanks.

Your question was to solve and you solved . Those are not the same equations. To solve the first equation, subtract 4 from each side: .
Surely 5 - 4 is NOT 5.
Whoops meant to put: 4 + log(base 3)(2-x) = 9 SORRY.
