Give you a guide to start. :smile:

Move one item to the right.
Take lg both side.
Use power law to bring the power down.
Expand and you will be able to group the lg x together and solve.
Try it :smile:

Thank you.
HI,

Firstly you have to read carefully. Qn is not asking for stationary point of CURVE !
It is asking for the stationary value for the GRADIENT FUNCTION. :scared:

Solution :
So you need to differentiate the GRADIENT, then equate it to zero for stationary value :smile:
Try it, should be ok now :smile:

Yes, thank you, Eddow. Got the answer now.

Can you help me with another one.

Hello. I think you might have made a mistake in the differentiation.

Anyways I suggest you try to simplify the expression (ln part) before differentiating. It will make the differentiation less tedious.

Can anyone please help me with these questions,
1. 9^y+5(3^y-10)=0
2. 3^2x=16-2(3^x+1)
3. 2^2x=2^x+1+15
Thank you

A rough guide... Use suitable substitution for all the Qn.
1. Let u = 3^y
2. Let u = 3^x
3. Let u = 2^x
Then you can carry on solving using quadratic equation.
Try :smile:
