I need some help solving this logarithm
42 = e^(-1.7+b) + 3.2
I know that the first step should be log.e^(-1.7+b) and then (-1.7+b)log.e but what happens later? and what happens with 3.2 and 42?
Thank you (:
Weird, I don't seem to get the correct result actually... should it be log(e^38.8)? because e is demanding something to the power of... and I suppose you mean that e should be within the brackets. There's no log(to the base of e) button.. if that is what I should have...
I don't know why you would be wanting to use the 'e to the power of' button .... What I have posted does not involve exponentials.
You need to read again the replies you've been given and then press the correct buttons on your calculator.
The thing is, I have to use the e button and.. well, it is apparently only e to the power of something on my calculator, should I just disregard e? What should b be? I get 3.70
I am a bit confused and it could be due to my rather poor English...
