Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

1 Answer

9 = 2 + (2.768) ln(x)
 
Subtract 2 from both sides:
 
7 = (2.768) ln(x)
 
Divide both sides by 2.768:
 
7/(2.768) = ln(x)
 
2.529 = ln(x)
 
e2.529 = x ≅ 12.541

Philip,
Line 5 should be 7/2.768=ln(x)

Yes, it is a 7 not a 2, and 12.541 is correct. Good catch, Kris (and Arthur). I corrected my answer above.
