What would logs have to do with it? Divide both sides by the coefficient and solve for x? Unless you mistyped something ...
$\displaystyle x(1.22)^{2} = 450$
$\displaystyle x = \frac{450}{1.22^{2}}$ ??
This solution is inconsistent with the other equation.

x(1.22)^2 = 450

As posted, these equations are inconsistent and therefore have no solution. They are essentially saying that (1.22)^2 = 1250/450 which is clearly false.

I should get you on a double post here. It is a good idea to keep your posts on a single problem together in one thread. It makes for better consistency.
