Given that:
The equation $$\displaystyle{10}^{{{6}-{3}{x}}}-{18}$$.
By using,
Natural Logarithm rule:
Exponent rule,
$$\displaystyle{\ln{{\left({x}^{{y}}\right)}}}={y}{\ln{{\left({x}\right)}}}$$
To solve the given equation.
By using the above formula,
Taking natural log on both side,
$$\displaystyle{\ln{{\left({10}^{{{6}-{3}{x}}}\right)}}}={\ln{{\left({18}\right)}}}$$
$$\displaystyle{\left({6}-{3}{x}\right)}{\ln{{\left({10}\right)}}}={\ln{{\left({18}\right)}}}$$
Divide on both side by $$\displaystyle{\ln{{\left({10}\right)}}}$$
To get,
$$\displaystyle{6}-{3}{x}={\frac{{{\ln{{\left({18}\right)}}}}}{{{\ln{{\left({10}\right)}}}}}}$$
$$\displaystyle-{3}{x}={\frac{{{\ln{{\left({18}\right)}}}}}{{{\ln{{\left({10}\right)}}}}}}-{6}$$
$$\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{1}}}{{-{3}}}}{\frac{{{\ln{{\left({18}\right)}}}}}{{{\ln{{\left({10}\right)}}}}}}+{3}$$
$$\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{1}}}{{-{3}}}}{\left({1.2553}\right)}+{3}$$
$$\displaystyle={\frac{{{1.2553}}}{{-{3}}}}+{3}$$
$$\displaystyle=-{0.4184}+{3}$$
$$\displaystyle={2.5816}$$
To get,
$$\displaystyle{x}={2.5816}$$
Therefore, $$\displaystyle{x}={2.5816}$$
