# How do you solve  e^(3x)= 12?

Nov 27, 2015

$\ln \frac{12}{3}$

#### Explanation:

In order to undo the $e$ power, take the natural logarithm of both sides of the equation.

Remember that the natural logarithm, $\ln$, can also be written as "${\log}_{e}$".

We get: $3 x = \ln 12$

$x = \ln \frac{12}{3}$
