1. the identity must be true for any value of x. That is, for all values of x, whatever you choose.

The identity does not say anything about the number x. If there is any value which does not satisfy the equation, then it is not an identity.

y=e^x how do i solve for x. i use the LN process right. i forgot how to do that ln(e ^ x) = x Leo, you have merely stated an identity. David was solving y = e^x for x, which would be x = ln y Thanks reiny.
