Need Help With This Exponential

Postby austinallexis » Wed Oct 31, 2012 9:40 pm

this one too: solve for x (2x-3 is exponent of 125)
125^2x-3=1

They show how to solve exponential equations here. I would start by remembering the power that is necessary to turn the base into "1". So what must "2x - 3" be equal to? Then I'd set 2x - 3 equal to that value, and solve for x.
