Jay Student Secondary Level Question This problem has me stumped since i cannot separate the t and the 3. Here it is: 12(1.221)^{t} = t + 3 

Hi Jay, If the instructions are to solve for t then my reaction is the same as yours. You can plot
to try to estimate a solution or use an approximation technique to look for a solution but I don't know any way to solve for t algebriclly. Harley
