how do you solve 3^x = 20 on a graphing calculator?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

well answer is $x=\frac{\ln(20)}{\ln(3)}$ for sure

by change of base formula if you want to solve $b^x=A$ for x the answer is $x=\frac{\ln(A)}{\ln(b)}$

thx!

in english, the log of the total divided by the log of the base. you can use $x=\frac{\log(A)}{\log(b)}$ to they both work
