    Is it \(13 = 10 * 1.024^x\) ?

    First, you must isolate \(1.024^x\)

    \[6500=5000(1.042)^x\] \[\frac{6500}{5000}=1.042^x\] \[1.3=1.042^x\] \[log_{10}(1.3)=x*log_{10}(1.042)\] \[\frac{log_{10}(1.3)}{log_{10}(1.042)}=x\] \[x \dot{=}6.377\]

    Then, when you have \(1.024^x = y\), you do this to find \(x\): \[x = \log_{1.024}(y)\]

    @KeithAfasCalcLover , you're not supposed to just give away the answer.
