# Solve each equation for x.53. (a) 2x–5 = 3(b) ln x + ln(x – 1) = 1

(a)

To determine

To solve: The equation, 2x5=3 for x.

Explanation

The given equation is 2x5=3 .

Taking log with base 2 on both sides, log2(2x5)=log23 .

Use the law of logarithm, logb(bx)=x,x and simplify further as follows

(b)

To determine

To solve: The equation, lnx+ln(x1)=1 for x.
