Hi, 

How would I solve x+ln(x+6) = 7? 

Would I have to bring the x to the other side and then solve using e^x-7=x+6 ?

\(x+ln(x+6) = 7\\ ln(x+6) = 7-x\\ e^{ln(x+6)} = e^{7-x}\\ x+6 = \frac{e^{7}}{e^x}\\ \frac{1}{x+6} = \frac{e^x}{e^{7}}\\ e^{7}= e^x(x+6)\\\)

 

 

mmm     That didn't help at all.   sad

so is this unable to be solved? technically this a second step to my question I'm actually supposed to find the inverse of \(f(x) = 7 + x + ln(x − 6)\)where  f^-1(14). that's how I approached the question because I assumed this was the only way to solve it

You can get the solution graphically.  It is an estimate of course.

x= 4.636

Finding the inverse value, f-1(14), doesn't require you to find the complete inverse function relationship.  See what you get when you calculate the value of f(7).

 

I'm assuming f(x) = 7 + x + ln(x - 6)         ( i.e. with ln(x - 6) not ln(x + 6) )
