    Solve for \(e^{x-1}\) and take the natural logarithm of both sides.

    Well, tell me, what do you get when you solve for \(e^{x-1}\)?

    \[e^x-1-5=5.\]\[e^x-6=5\]\[e^x=11\]\[ln(e^x)=ln(11)\]\[xln(e)=ln(11)\]\[x=ln(11)\]

    Is that \[5*6^{3m} = 20\]?

    I'll assume it is, if it isn't, maybe the example will help you. \[5*6^{3m} = 20\]Divide both sides by 5\[6^{3m}=4\]Take natural log of both sides\[3m \ln 6 = \ln 4\]Divide both sides by \( 3 \ln 6\)\[m = \frac{\ln 4}{3 \ln 6}\]
