Solving Logarithmic Equations Algebraically

A logarithmic equation can be solved using powers to undo the logarithm. In the equation above, the base of the logarithm is Therefore, to isolate both sides should be raised so they become the exponent of a power with base Since exponents and logarithms are inverse operations, becomes isolated and the right-hand side can be evaluated.
