Notice that 243 is 3 to the 5th power.So your equation says:3x = 35I'd say that 'x' is probably 5.

9x = 243 ln(9x) = ln(243) xln(9) = ln(243) x = ln(243)/ln(9) x = 2.5 NB this works with log10 too. NBB if you don't have a calculator, this kinda question will only have easy values of x like integer values or 0.5, so its always worth chucking numbers in.

3^-5=(1/3^5)=1/243

It's the same as 1 divided by (3 to the power 5).

3 3^5 = 243 (3 x 3) x (3 x 3) x 3 = 243 9 x 9 x 3 = 243 81 x 3 = 243
