Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not quite sure how to solve this one either but we can get it down to this: \[5^{\ln x}x^5 = x^9 simplifies \to 5^{\ln x} = x^4\] Then if we take the log of each side: \[\ln 5^{\ln x } =\ln x^4 simplifies \to \ln x * \ln 5 = 4 \ln x\] And as we see ln 5 will never equal 4 then we must get ln x to equal 0 and then we will have 0 = 0. So ln x = 0 means x = 1. Anyone have a more exact approach to this?
