exponential and logarithmic equation assistance

Postby calisunshine » Thu Apr 21, 2011 3:59 am

Hi,
I am learning to solve exponenetial and logarithmic equations. The question I need help understanding is:
solve and give answer to the fourth decimal place (answer:1.2702)
13 ^(x-1) = 2

I am unsure of how to proceed after
log13^(x-1) = log 2

Thank you
