I'm not sure what you mean, but I think you want the equation in logarithmic form? Because it's already in exponential form.

Sorry.. I mean to say solve this equation using algebraic procedure. Its a logarithmic equation. So here is the equation once again: 2^5x+3=1/8

If that's the case, then do the following: 1) subtract 3 to the other side 2^(5x)=(1/8)-3 2) Take the log base 2 of both sides following the rule y = log2(x), 2^y=x \[\log_{2} (2^{5x})=\log_{2}(1/8 - 3)\] 3) The log base 2 cancels the 2 in 2^5x leaving you with 5x \[5x=\log_{2}(1/8-3)\] 4) divide both sides by 5 \[x=\log_2(1/8-3)/5\] This is a logarithmic equation because it has logarithms in it. This is different from an exponential equation which you provided. In fact, it is the inverse.

But the answer in my textbook is -6/5.. LOL!

I think I wrote the problem wrong.. its 2^(5x+3)=1/8

Okay, so the steps are the same. 1) Take the log base 2 of both sides because your base in the exponential function 2^(5x+3) is 2. \[\log_{2}(2^{5x+3})=\log_2(1/8) \] 2) Using the logarithm property \[\log_a(a^{x}) = x\] where x is some function, employ the property on the left hand side of the equation to get\[5x+3=\log_{2}(1/8) \] 3) Another logarithm property states that\[\log_{a}(x/y)=\log_a(x)-\log_a(y) \]where x and y are some function, employ this on the right hand side to get\[5x+3=\log_2(1)-\log_2(8)\] 4) loga(x) = N is equivalent to a^N=x so 2^N=1 when N=0 and 2^N=8 when N=3 giving you\[5x+3=0-3=-3\] 5) Subtract 3 on both sides of the equation and divide both sides of the equation by 5 to get\[x=(-3-3)/5 = -6/5\]
