I understand the basics, but I can't figure this one out. Any help would be appreciated. Give the exact answer ( in terms of natural logarithms). Then use a calculator to find an approximat answer. 7.8e^(x/3)ln5 = 14 Thank you for your time.

If you want an exact answer then turn the decimal into a fraction first: My question, though, is whether the "ln(5)" is part of the exponent, or multiplying the e^(x/3)? -Dan
It is part of the exponent. Sorry that was not clear.

Picking up from topsquark: Only kidding!! log/log CANNOT BE SIMPLIFIED - engrave (*ahem* metaphorically speaking) this fact on your skull.
