Formula used:
Change of base formula for logarithm is given by ${\mathrm{log}}_{a}x=\frac{{\mathrm{log}}_{b}x}{{\mathrm{log}}_{b}a}$, for $a>0$ and $x>0$
Calculation:
$2×{10}^{x}=66$
${10}^{x}=\frac{66}{2}$
${10}^{x}=33$
$x={\mathrm{log}}_{10}\left(33\right)$
Change to an logarithmic equation
$x=\frac{\mathrm{log}\left(33\right)}{\mathrm{log}\left(10\right)}$ Using the Change of Base Formula
$x=\frac{1.5185}{1}\mathrm{log}\left(13\right)=1.5185$ and $\mathrm{log}\left(10\right)=1$
$x\approx 1.52$
Conclusion:
The solution for the given equation is $x\approx 1.52$.
