## anonymous 4 years ago Solve the following equation. log3(x-2)=-1

1. anonymous

rewrite in equivelant exponential from as $3^{-1}=x-2$ and solve for x

2. anonymous

so would i subtract the -2 from 3

3. anonymous

it is not 3, it is $3^{-1}=\frac{1}{3}$

4. anonymous

$\frac{1}{3}+2=\frac{7}{3}=x$
