Adorkable

T(t)=63(.05)^(t/10)+19 . Where T is temperature, and t is time in minutes. How long did it take for a sandwich to reach an internal temputure of 30 degrees. I know that I have to substitute 30 into T. But I don't know how to solve for t. Please help and show steps.

    30 = 63(0.5)^(t/10) + 19 11 = 63(0.5)^(t/10) 11/63 = (0.5)6(t/10) ln(11/63) = (t/10)ln(0.5) Should be able to solve from there.

    I get where you got everything from what I"m having trouble with is isolating t.

    Do you know logarithms?

    Agreed, the only way to solve for the independent variable t is to use logarithms.

    Lol, Can you give me the jist of this? I probably have learned it but we don't call it logarithms.
