Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Take the log base (1/32) to get: \[\log_{\frac{1}{32}}(4^{3x1}) = 5x1 \] remembering that you can bring exponents out of logs you get: $$(3x1)log_{\frac{1}{32}}(4) = 5x1$$ now to get rid of the log base (1/32), you apply the rule $$log_n(m) = \frac{ln(m)}{ln(n)}$$ you get: $$\frac{ln(4)}{ln(1/32)} = \frac{5x1}{3x1}$$ and then doing some simple algebra and solving for x you get x = 7/31
