$x \approx 3.66$

Work Step by Step

RECALL: $\ln{e^m}=m$ Take the natural logarithm of both sides to obtain: $\ln{e^{0.7x}}=\ln{13}$ Use the rule above to obtain: $0.7x=\ln{13}$ Divide both sides by $0.7$ to obtain: $x = \dfrac{\ln{13}}{0.7}$ Use a scientific calculator to obtain: $x=3.664213368 \\x \approx 3.66$
