    is the question \[5e^{2x + 8} = 22\] or \[5 e^{2x} + 8 = 22\]

    ok... so the 1st step is subtract 8 from both sides of the equation. then divide both sides of the equation by 5 what do you get?

    $$ \large { \text{log cancellation rule}\\ \color{blue}{log_aa^x = x}\\ e^{2x} = whatever\\ ln = log_e\\ log_e(e^{2x}) = log_e(whatever)\\ 2x = log_e(whatever) } $$
