How do you solve -5 + 2 ln 3x = 5?

Jul 2, 2016

$x = {e}^{5} / 3$

Explanation:

We have the equation $- 5 + 2 \ln 3 x = 5$

By adding 5 on both sides, we get ${\cancel{2}}^{1} \ln 3 x = {\cancel{10}}^{5}$

Since it is "lan", the base will be $e$. So, by taking the base to remove the $\ln$, we get
$3 x = {e}^{5}$
