6-113.

Solve each of the following equations to the nearest 0.001. Homework Help ✎

  1. 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)

  2. Divide both sides of the equation by 18.
    See part (a).
