so, ab^{x}=c
do I just say that a * x log b=c and solve for x?
and then x=c/a * log b? and that's the answer?
Just as you cannot take the square root of only one factor of one term in an equation, while leaving the others unaffected; just as you cannot divide only one term in an equation, while leaving the others unaffected; just as you cannot square only one portion of an expression in an equation, while leaving the rest unaffected; just as you've always had to do the same thing to both sides of a given equation, so also you must "log" both sides of an exponential equation.so, ab^{x}=c

The only way you could arrive at the above equation would be to take the log, on the left, of the b^{x} only. You cannot take the log of just one of the factors of the term. You must take the log of the entire side.ok, so after taking log of both sides...
a * x log b=log c and solve for x?
