    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?
