## Step by step guide to solve Natural Logarithms

- A natural logarithm is a logarithm that has a special base of the mathematical constant \(e\), which is an irrational number approximately equal to \(2.71\).
- The natural logarithm of \(x\) is generally written as ln \(x\), or \(\log_{e}{x}\).

### Natural Logarithms – Example 1:

Solve the equation for \(x\): \(e^x=3\)

**Solution:**

If \(f(x)=g(x)\),then: \(ln(f(x))=ln(g(x))→ln(e^x)=ln(3) \)

Use log rule: \(\log_{a}{x^b}=b \log_{a}{x}\), then: \(ln(e^x)=x ln(e)→xln(e)=ln(3) \)

\(ln(e)=1\), then: \(x=ln(3) \)

### Natural Logarithms – Example 2:

Solve equation for \(x\): \(ln(2x-1)=1\)

**Solution:**

Use log rule: \(a=\log_{b}{b^a}\), then: \(1=ln(e^1 )=ln(e)→ln(2x-1)=ln(e)\)

When the logs have the same base: \(\log_{b}{f(x)}=\log_{b}{g(x)}\), then: \(f(x)=g(x)\)

then: \(ln(2x-1)=ln(e)\), then: \(2x-1=e→x=\frac{e+1}{2}\)

### Natural Logarithms – Example 3:

Solve the equation for \(x\): \(e^x=5\)

**Solution:**

If \(f(x)=g(x)\),then: \(ln(f(x))=ln(g(x))→ln(e^x)=ln(5) \)

Use log rule: \(\log_{a}{x^b}=b \log_{a}{x}\), then: \(ln(e^x)=x ln(e)→xln(e)=ln(5) \)

\(ln(e)=1\), then: \(x=ln(5) \)

### Natural Logarithms – Example 4:

Solve equation for \(x\): \(ln(5x-1)=1\)

**Solution:**

Use log rule: \(a=\log_{b}{b^a}\), then: \(1=ln(e^1 )=ln(e)→ln(5x-1)=ln(e)\)

When the logs have the same base: \(\log_{b}{f(x)}=\log_{b}{g(x)}\), then: \(f(x)=g(x)\)

then: \(ln(5x-1)=ln(e)\), then: \(5x-1=e→x=\frac{e+1}{5}\)
