Okay I'm having a small issue with logarithms. I have this problem assigned by my teacher: Attachment 6089. How precisely do I solve this problem? And moreover what is the general rule to solving other problems like this?

Hello there,

well i hope you know that you can simplify the exponential:

$\displaystyle e^{log_2 16}

= e^{log_2 2^4}

= e^{4log_2 2}

= e^4 $ - Apr 28th 2008, 07:17 AMParadoxKing
Thanks, that helped a lot.

actually you cannot solve the problem since there is no variable for which to solve

it seems to simplify to e^4 + 2

agreement?
