Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

As it says, we start by dividing by 4 on both sides to get the "e" by itself.

e^x = 80/4;   e^x = 20

Now we take the natural log of both sides.

x = ln(20) = 2.9957

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
