First, take the ln of each side of the equation:
By the third law of exponents, "bring the exponents down" to become coefficients:
Get all the x terms on one side and the non-x terms on the other side. You might want to subtract
from each side:
Factor out the x on the left side in order to get the x in one place, so you can solve for x.
Divide both sides by
Calculate with a calculator: x = -1.618 approximately.
