How are problems like this solved \(\log_7 (4x+1) + \log_5 (5x+3) = 4\)

I know how to use change of base formula but in solving exponents involving logarithms (e.g. \(a^{\log_b (2x+y)} \)) I get stucked.

There is no exact form of \(x\). You can only use approximation/numerical methods to get \(x \approx 7.06\). Pi Han Goh · 1 year, 2 months ago
