4 (10)^(5x) = 200       divide both sides by 4

 

(10)^(5x) = 50          take the log of both sides

 

log 10^(5x) = log 50       and by a log property, we can write

 

(5x) log 10  =  log 50        log 10  = 1  ....so we can ignore this.....and we have

 

5x  =  log 50             divide both sides by 5

 

x =  [ log 50 ] / 5
