Yes this would be very simple, except this is a logarithim equation. The answer you gave isn't correct either.
the e actually represect ln.
Lee, the solution that John gave you is correct according to the way you typed the question.
I have a feeling you meant to type
2e^(7x+4) = 4
if so, then
e^(7x+4) = 2
take ln of both sides
ln(e^(7x+4)) = ln2
(7x+4)lne = ln2 , but lne = 1
7x+4 = ln2
7x = ln2 - 4
x = (ln2 - 4)/7 or appr. - .4724
you are correct. I understand it now. You are such a fantastic help :)
