Question 31403: I see this question has already been asked, but I think it was submitted incorrectly. Solve the equation. Give an exact solution.
4^(x+6) = 7
Please help with this.
Here is another one that I am having trouble with.
Write the equation in its equivalent logarithmic form.
10^2 = y
I think the answer is logy = 2
but I am not sure why or how to get there.
thanks in advance for all your help!! Answer by stanbon(60778) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! 1) Take the log of both sides to get:
(x+6)log6 = log7
2) correct; you see that the exponent is "2".
So you write log = 2
Then you aswer the question; exponent that produces what?
So you write it as log y = 2
meaning "The exponent that produces y is 2".
