 Click here to see ALL problems on logarithm Question 465502: I need to solve the following: -=2 *I had to write this differently because of the formula plotting system (the second part is really e to the -x instead of 1/e^x). So I believe from here you subtract 2 from both sides and end up with everything equal to zero, and then you would let u=, so that you have u-(1/u)-2=0. Then I get confused as to how to solve this by using the quadratic formula, because I don't know what b=? . That is really all I am confused on, assuming I'm going about this the right way in the first place. I hope I've explained that well. Thanks!
