Solve the exponential equation algebraically: -14 + 3e^x = 11

So I think I move the -14 to the other side, so now I'm left with

3e^x = 25

What do i do next?

Ok, so

e^x = 25/3

How do I find the natural log of both sides? - Oct 12th 2009, 11:02 AMe^(i*pi)

My teacher wants me to round the result to 3 decimal places. What do I type in the calculator?

Thank you for your help, by the way :) - Oct 12th 2009, 11:24 AMe^(i*pi)
