Homework Help: Pre-calc Solve logarithmic

Posted by Marcos on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at 9:46pm.

ln sqrt(x-8)= 5

I would like help to solve this what i did was to take away the square root i squared both sides coming up with

(ln sqrt(x-8))^2= (5)^2

ln(x-8)=25

am i alowed to do this with ln in the equation?

then i subtract 8 from both sides

ln x = 17

e^(ln x)= e^17
e cancels out ln leaving with
x=e^17

this is not right the real answer is
x = 8 + e^10 on math-way but how?

thanks
