Is this: e^(3x-5)=17

or e^(3x)-5 =17
e3x-5 =17

Sorry for the confusion.

It is e^(3x-5)=17

Take the ln (log base e) of each side.

3x-5= ln17
3x= ln 17 + 5

then divide by 3.
Ln 17 ...put that in the google search window

or put this in the google search window..
(ln 17 + 5)/3

To solve the equation e^(3x-5)=17, you can follow these steps:

Step 1: Take the natural logarithm (ln) of both sides of the equation. This helps to isolate the exponent (3x-5) and convert it into a simpler form.

ln(e^(3x-5)) = ln(17)

Step 2: Simplify the left side using the logarithmic property ln(e^a) = a.

3x-5 = ln(17)

Step 3: Add 5 to both sides of the equation.

3x = ln(17) + 5

Step 4: Divide both sides of the equation by 3 to solve for x.

x = (ln(17) + 5)/3

To find the value of (ln(17) + 5)/3, you can use the Google search window. Simply type "(ln 17 + 5)/3" (without the quotes) into the search bar, and it will provide you with the numerical result.
