Problem Background:
Finding the Hausdorff dimension of an iterated function system, after composing mappings, I end up with an expression which needs to be solved using logs.
Problem:
Solve the equation 2*(1/9)^s+ 2*(1/4)^s = 1 for s.
In this example, the solution sheet gives s = 0.802, but I have no idea how to get to that. Any help much appreciated!
