Solving for x... Can anybody help? I think I did it right but want to make sure. Log2 base 2 ^ x-5 = 5

    Do you mean\[\log_22^{x-5}\]?

    If so, that's\[\log_22^{x-5}=(x-5)\log_22=(x-5).1=x-5\]

    Well, you can't solve for x unless \[\log_22^{x-5}=(something)\]

    If there's no '=' sign in your question, it's an 'expression' that you need to simplify.

    x=10 does that help?

    \[x-5=5 \rightarrow x=10\]
