70=T+c

110=T+ce^(K/2)

145=T+ce^K

solve T = ?

**1)** First, solve for K using your second equation:

**2)** Now, note that T=70-c and our K above, use your third equation:

Move over 70, and use that (110-T)/c = (c+40)/c (which you can get from 110=T+c+40 in equation 2)

But e^ln(a)=a, so

Which gives c=-320.

**3)** So T=70-c=70+320=390.
