 Question 631545: 2^(x + 4) = 5^(x - 3) round to the 4th decimal place. I've tried switching them over to log form and solving out but it seems it's always wrong.Answer by Edwin McCravy(8999)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!``` = = (x+4)log(2) = (x-3)log(5) Let log(2) = A and log(5) = B (x+4)A = (x-3)B A(x+4) = B(x-3) Ax+4A = Bx-3B Ax-Bx = -4A-3B x(A-B) = -4A-3B x = x = Get your calculator. x = 8.295295582 rounds to 8.2953 Edwin```
