you probably meant:
e^(3x) > e^(x-1), (huge difference from what you typed)
ln both sides
ln (e^(3x)) > ln e^(x-1)
3x > x-1
2x > -1
x > -1/2
-6log (subscript of 4) x > -24
divide both sides by -6
log4 x < 4
x < 4
but remember we can only take logs of positive numbers, so
0 < x < 4 , also remember that log(a number between 0 and 1 is negative, and multiplying it by -6 would make the result positive.
so 1 < x < 256
check: notice the graph of y = log4 x
is below y = 4 from 1 to 256
Now for the equations:
the way you typed it ...
8^x = 2
x = 1/3 , since the cuberoot of 8 is 2
the way you typed it:
e^x = 48
ln both sides
ln (e^x) = ln 48
x lne = ln 48
x = ln 48 , since lne = 1
divide both sides by 8
log x = 2
10^2 = x
x = 100
