    You can simplify it better by: 2^x + 2^3 = 7 Or go to http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=solve+2^%28x%2B3%29%3D7 The answer is C.

    @sam that should be "2^x *2^3" and not '+'.

    \[2^{x} \times 2^{3} = 7 \]

    I GOT IT!! Ok, so: \[2^{x} \times 8 =7\] \[2^{x}= 7/8\] \[x=\log(7/8) \div \log(2) ; x=-0.19\]
