Solve for x in the following equation.
Note that the domain is the set of real numbers such that or
Isolate the exponential term in the equation .
Divide both sides of the equation by 56
Square both sides of the equation.
Take the natural log of both sides of the equation
Since 0.74247042592 is not , there is not solution.
You can also check your answer by graphing (formed by subtracting the right side of the original equation from the left side). Look to see where the graph crosses the x-axis; that will be the real solution. Note that the graph never crosses the x-axis.. This means that there are no real solutions.
