    you have to multiply the equation by \(3^{4x-1}\) to get all the x on one side and then you just simplify, until you can take the logarithm.

    Then show your calculations and where you don't know what to do.

    where are you getting that though you combined both sidfes of the equal sign..

    If you multiply both sides by that term you will get just "1" on one side and the terms with x on the other.

    I really dont understand what your saying where did you get 3^4x-1 its either 3^x-1 or 1/3^4x-1

    \(3^{4x-1} \cdot (\frac{1}{3})^{4x-1} = 1\) that is why you should really look at those rules!

    Maybe you should start with some easier exponential calculations then.
