Answer:

Step 1: Rewrite the equation with a base raised to a power on one side 3^x = 5 Step 2: Take the natural log (or common log) of each side (Put a 'ln' in front of each side) ln (3^x) = ln (5) Step 3: Use a logarithmic property to remove the variable from the exponent x ln (3) = ln (5) Step 4: Solve for the variable [x ln (3)] / ln (3) = ln (5) x = [ln (5) / ln (3)] x = 1.4650
