### exponential and logarithmic equation assistance

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

$\log\left(13^{x-1}\right)=(x-1)\log(13)$
