Solve each log equation below without a calculator.
\[\log_{3} (5x+1)=4\]
rewrite in equivalent exponential for \[\log_b(x)=y\iff b^y=x\]
in your example it is \[\log_3(5x+1)=4\iff 3^4=5x+1\]
so then you just solve regularly. They always seem impossible, then they get explained lol :) Thanks a bunch.
yes once you know what to do it is easy enough right? yw
