True.

#### Work Step by Step

The steps for solving $\mathrm{a}^{t}=b$ for $t$: 1. Take the logarithm (either natural or common) on both sides. 2. Use the power rule for logarithms so that the variable is a factor instead of an exponent. 3. Divide both sides by the coefficient of the variable to isolate the variable. 4. If appropriate, use a calculator to find an approximate solution. So, yes, the statement is true.
