Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so are you looking for the exponent of 6...? as in \[(6^x)^{4} = 620\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok... so using the power of a power law which means multiply the powers \[6^{4x} = 620\] now you need logs to solve it take the log of both sides \[\ln(6^{4x}) = \ln(620)\] applying the log laws for powers \[4x \times \ln(6) = \ln(620)\] so \[4x = \frac{\ln(620)}{\ln(6)}\] now solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so when you get a value for the log division, just divide it by 4
