Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to cancel out e you have to take the ln to both sides\[\ln( e ^{(4*x)})=ln(1000)\] \[{(4*x)}=ln(1000)\] \[{(x)}=(ln(1000))/4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought I had to 4th root each side because I am left with x^4=ln1000?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its xto the 4th not 4*x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the original equation? a) \(e^{x^4} = 1000\) b) \(e^{x4} = 1000\) c) \(e{x^4} = 1000\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so start by taking the natural log of both sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can't take the 4th root yet because you'd have \[(e^{x^4})^{\frac{1}{4}} = e^{\frac{x^4}{4}} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[e ^{x ^{4}} = 1000\] so \[ln(e ^{x ^{4})} = ln(1000)\] \[{x ^{4}} = ln(1000)\] \[x= \sqrt[4]{\ln(1000)}\] or you can say \[x= (\ln(1000))^{1/4}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Romero is correct. The answer is the \[x=\sqrt[4]{ln\ 1000}\]
