solve the following exponential equation.

7^x=8

a. x= Write in exact solution
b. then with that answer move the decimal 3 points over

  • college algebra -

    log10(7^x) = log10(8)
    Using log rules (log(a^b) = b*log(a))

    x*log10(7) = log10(8)
    x*.845 = .903 = log(8)/log(7)
    x = 1.068 to 3 decimals
