Exponential Function Question

In the exponential function a^x=b (a to the power x equals b), can I reduce this to x=? (what would x equal)?

Re: Exponential Function Question

Hi;

Take the ln of both sides.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.
