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.

I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
