The application of the properties of logarithms is needed here to solve for the value of x.

This is a common logarithm. Therefore, the base is 10

Applying this property,

then applying log b = y, which is

Therefore,

take note,

Simplifying,

then we cross multiply

add -3x to both sides

then,

divide by 27

reducing to lowest term

we are asked to round off to two decimals. Therefore the answer is
