what is logx=4-x asking for a solution

Guest Apr 27, 2017

X is approximately  2.93. Solve for ln(x) = 4-x and then use iteration


ln(x) = 4-x

    x   = e^(4-x)  = (e^4) /(e^x)

    x( e^x)         = e^4  = 54.6    approx

For the iteration x(e^x) = 54.6    I started with x= 2 and homed in on it from there.
