how would i solve this one

we introduce logarithms on both sides

log {5^(2x+1)}=log{3^(4x-2)}

(2x+1)*log 5=(4x-2)*log 3

(2x+1)={(4x-2)*log 3}/log 5

2x+1=(4x-2)*(log3/log5)

2x+1=(4x-2)*(0.6826)

2x+1=2.73x-1.37

1+1.37=2.73x-2x

2.37=0.73x

x=3.2466

how did you get 2.73x

=(4x-2)*(0.6826)

=(4*0.6826)x-2*(0.6826)

=2.7304x-1.3652

rounded off to the nearest hundredth,

=2.73x-1.37

okay thank you so much!!!!

welcome
