Solve for x! Can't for the life of me figure this out! I assume you have to use Logs!

3^(x+1)=4^(x-1) | *4

4*3^(x+1)=4^x

ready?

4*3^(x+1)=4^x | ln( .. ) on both sides, let's assume x will be larger 0

ln( 4*3^(x+1) ) = ln( 4^x )

x*ln(3)+ln(12) = x*ln(4) | -x*ln(4) and -ln(12)

x*ln(3)-x*ln(4)=-ln(12)

x*(ln(3)-ln(4))=-ln(12)

x=-ln(12)/(ln(3)-ln(4))

x ≈ 8.63768335861279

They use a comma for a decimal point.

 

To avoid confusion, for a thousand, no need for a separator, use a space to separate.

 

1 234 = 1 thousand 2 hundreds 3 tens 4 ones

1,234 or 1.234 = 1 one 2 tenths 3 hundredths 4 thousandths
