a. 2/5 e
b. in2/5
c. 5 in 2
d. in5/2

• College Algebra -

typo those answers contain L's not I's

• College Algebra -

Using the relation
ln(ex = x

For
e5x = 2
Take natural log on both sides,
ln(e5x) = ln(2)
5x = ln(2)
x = ln(2) / 5

• College Algebra -

take the ln of both sides
5x=ln2
x= 1/5 ln2

so, none of the choices are correct, unless on answer b you meant 1/5 ln2
