So, my car broke down, and I am stranded. While I am waiting for my dad to get here, I am passing time by doing math problems. Here is one I just did:

Solve for x

ln(4x-2)=5

What I did was I took e, and I put it to the 5th power for 148.413.......... I added 2 for 150.413......... Then I divided it by 4. I got x =37.603.........

I tested it. ln(4*37.603........-2)=5

It worked. I found x.

Earlier today, I was watching an episode of a tv show. A character asked this problem:

"If x=y*pi^3, and y equals the square root of 78, how would you determine the value of x?"

x = 273.8400209.

It was simpler than I thought.

Well, that's all. I just wanted to share what I am doing with math. I might as well practice more problems while I am waiting.
