    Solving logarithmic equation for x

    I've run into another logarithmic equation I'm not sure how to go about solving. Would appreciate a hint or guidelines:

    Solve the equation. (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

    ex30ex − 1 = 0

    Thanks.

    start by multiplying each term by e^x ... then deal w/ the resulting quadratic (in e^x)
