The equation is this: ln(x-1)=2x-3 When i solve for x, the calculator says: More solutions may exist. and it does not give me any solutions. What should i do to get the results?

What should i do to get the results? Graph it. From the graph, there is no intersection point. Thus, the solution to the equation you asked about will be complex. On the TI89, use Code: csolve(ln(x-1)=2x-3,x) You will get 1 solution. I hope this clarifies things! --Chris
