The equation is a logarithm problem that reads:

(a^2)(e^-ax)-(b^2)(e^-bx)=0 where a>b

The answer is:

(2(log[base e]a-log[base e]b))/(a-b)

How do I get from the problem to the solution.

Thank you

Hello, Crisor2431!

I assume that you know that is written

Quote:

(a^2)(e^-ax)-(b^2)(e^-bx)=0 where a>b

The answer is: (2(log[base e]a - log[base e]b)) / (a - b)
