write in the equivalent exponent form

2. freckles

$b=\ln(a) \implies e^{b}=a$

Would it be 147.41 ??

so I guess you wrote in the exponential form... $e^5=x+1 \\ \text{ last step is \to subtract 1 on both sides } \\ e^5-1=x$ well and then you can approximate the number by rounding to nearest hundredth seems good

So 147.41?
