1. If P(t) =3P(2)
then 3e^(2t) = 2(3e^(4t)
e^(2t) = 2 (e^2t)^2
let e^2t = y
y = 2y^2
2y^2  y = 0
y(2y 1) = 0
y = 0 or y = 1/2
e^2t = 0 > no solution
or
e^2t = 1/2
ln (e^2t) = ln (1/2) = ln1  ln2 = ln2
2t = ln2
t = (1/2)ln 2
2. √(log(x)) = log (√x) = log x^(1/2) = (1/2) logx
let logx = y
√ y = (1/2)y
y = (1/4)y^2
4y = y^2
y^2  4y = 0
y (y  4) = 0
y = 0 or y = 4
logx = 0 or logx = 4
x = 10^0 = 1 OR x = 10^4 = 10000
