Solve for x over the real numbers:
850 e^(0.055 x) = 195 e^(0.075 x)

850 e^(0.055 x) = 850 e^(11 x/200) and 195 e^(0.075 x) = 195 e^(3 x/40):
850 e^((11 x)/200) = 195 e^((3 x)/40)

Take the natural logarithm of both sides and use the identities log(a b) = log(a) + log(b) and log(a^b) = b log(a):
(11 x)/200 + log(850) = (3 x)/40 + log(195)

Subtract (3 x)/40 + log(850) from both sides:
-x/50 = log(195) - log(850)

Multiply both sides by -50:
Answer: | x = 50 log(850) - 50 log(195)= 73.61183954603077.......
