Algebra with logarithms and roots - please help
Hi, I'm trying to solve the following equation in terms of p, but finding it very difficult. Please help! Thanks in advance. - Charlie

y = exp(w+1/2(p^2))*sqrt(expp^2 - 1)

[exp is the natural log and y,w,p are variables]

Hi CharlesLark! :)

What do you get if you square both sides?

Can you substitute $u=\exp(p^2)$ and solve for u?
