# Thread: can anyone give me the exact solution of equation without using taylor expansion

1. ## can anyone give me the exact solution of equation without using taylor expansion

$a^x + b^x = c$
here a , b , c , are constants x is only variable
I have solved using Taylor expansion and can easily be done be graphs or a computatonal code

Is there any algebraic method?????????

2. In general, no, you cannot solve that equation in terms of "elementary" functions.
