Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To solve, get the exponential part by itself by dividing both sides by 4300. Then, get the 3r out of the exponent by taking the natural logarithm of both sides (the ln button on your calculator). This will cancel out the e on the right side and leave 3r. Finally, divide both sides of the equation by 3.
