# Question #4de38

An exponential function and a polynomial are mixed in this equation. It is easy to frame such an equation like ${a}^{x} = b x + c$ that is solvable by inspection. Here, the solution is x = 2.
Only numerical iterative methods help solving equations like ${a}^{x} = b x + c$. The methods generate a sequence of approximations $\left\{{x}_{n}\right\} , n = 0 , 1 , 2 , 3. . . ,$ with ${x}_{n} \to x$, as $n \to \infty$.
A starter approximate solution ${x}_{0}$ is required for using such methods. Newton Raphson method is one such method..
