The second answer is not rounded to the number of decimal places the problem requires.
Also, is it possible that the "log" here is supposed to be the natural logarithm, base e, rather than the common logarithm, base 10?
Find all numbers x that satisfy the given equation
Write your answers in ascending order.
Round your first answer to 5 decimal places and the second one to 1 decimal place.
(log(9x))log(x) = 5
(log(9) + log(x))log(x) = 5
y = log(x)
y^2 + log(9)y -5 = 0
y^2 + 0.95424250943y - 5 = 0
--> y = 1.8092830602959769 or y = -2.763525569725977
--> x = 10^1.8092830602959769 or x = 10^-2.763525569725977
--> x = 64.4589252839 or x = 0.00172375059
So the answer would be
x = 0.00172
x = 64.5
Am I correct?
I tried to solve it that way 3 times already and it said incorrect with other values :/
Your approach (I didn't check your calculations) to solving for x is certainly correct. If you made a mistake, it was a computational one.
