9-126. This problem is a checkpoint for solving equations with exponents. It will be referred to as Checkpoint 9A.

For parts (a) through (d), solve for $x$ correct to four decimal places.

1. $29 = 3^{x}$

1. $3^x=\frac{1}{29}$

1. $29 = x^{3}$

1. $–29 = x^{3}$

1. The cost of a movie ticket at the local theater is currently $10.00$, and has been increasing $7\%$ a year. If the price continues to increase at the same rate, when will a ticket cost $15.00$?
