Take the natural log of both sides to get $3x-5=\ln(1785.96)$

Then solve for x.

Can you take it from here?

3. Take the ln of both sides to get:

$3x-5 = \ln{1785.96}$

Now then solve for x.

EDIT: LOL, that's the second time this happens today

4. i got 4.17??? this same problem has come up 2 times? I wonder if someone from my class found this website as well. mmm wow.

5. x = 4.16257045, because: Solve for x to eight decimal places if

6. oh, oh ok, I looked over that, thank you so much...you are absolutely AMAZING! lol
