Exponential Equations
Can anyone please help me figure out how to solve the following problem? I believe you take the natural log of both sides, but I'm still left with 2 x's.

Solve the problem. Round answers to the nearest hundredth.
70.47x = 30.58x

70.47x = 30.58x

you equation is unclear ... do you mean $70.47^x = 30.58^x$ ???

if so, then x = 0 is the only solution.
