Is the same as:
There could be a question that wants you to work out the value of x, and to

- Workout:
Make equal to x.
Just like using the equations, (you can properly use them if you want to) you
bring the 3 from the left to the right. So you are left with
Then add a `log' onto the other side: ( .)
Bring the `x' before the `log' ( ) ­ Now you are in a position to
