Solve each of the following equations to the nearest 0.001. Homework Help ✎
Since you are solving for an exponent,
take the log of each side:
Apply the Power Property:
Divide both sides of the equation by log(5.825):
Add 3 to both sides and use your calculator.
Remember to round to the nearest 0.001.
log(5.825)(x − 3) = log(120)
(x − 3)log(5.825) = log(120)
Divide both sides of the equation by 18.
