Quandaries and Queries


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
It's on a logarithm worksheet, but how do i figure it out?!



Hi Jay,

If the instructions are to solve for t then my reaction is the same as yours. You can plot

f(t) = 12(1.221)t - t - 3

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.
