Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it just a hint, so that both sides have log's :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But how do you go from log(x(x+15)=2.. to x=5? I can't get that part

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2log(x(x+15))=2 log(x(x+15)=log100 cancel out the log, giving us : x(x+15)=100 or x^2+15x100=0 solve for x by factorization or by complete square or by quadratic formula
