exponent problem
Solve the equation $\displaystyle e/ \sqrt{e}=e^{2x}$ I know you have to divide e into the sq rt e first, which should give you a base of e.
So then you work with the powers
$\displaystyle 1=2x$ divide by 2 and $\displaystyle x=1/2$, but the answer is $\displaystyle x=1/4$.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks

$\displaystyle \frac{e}{e^{\frac{1}{2}}} = e^{2x}$
$\displaystyle e^{1  \frac{1}{2}} = e^{2x}$
$\displaystyle e^{\frac{1}{2}} = e^{2x}$
I think you subtracted wrong in the second step by mistake.
