Re: exponential equationHi jacks; To prove that there are no more we maybe can use calculus here. 2) For this one there looks like there is one root near  1 / 2. ( see the last image ) 3) There looks like there is one root around  3 / 5. ( see the first image ) As a general rule when an exponential function begins to overpower a polynomial, the polynomial never recovers. I would say that there are no more roots. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. 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.
