Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn two different ways to solve a natural logarithm problem. The first way is to transfer the logarithm to exponential form, while the second way is to eliminate the logarithm altogether. Our goal is to get x equals, and logarithms can provide an approximate answer, so it's best to get rid of them if possible. By raising e to the ln of e, we can eliminate the logarithm and solve the problem to find x equals e to the negative first.

Lesson Description:

Solving a natural logarithm for the given problem

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
