that was the "easy" solution ... the next is a pain in the @$$ ...

one of these two solutions is extraneous ... the solution that works is not pretty, you'll need a calculator to determine x.

which makes me ask the question ... were you allowed to use a calculator in solving this equation in the first place? - Nov 16th 2008, 12:04 PMandyp999
