To solve equation
50=600e0.4x
50600=e0.4x
taking ln of both sides we get
ln(50/600)=lne0.4x
ln0.08=lne0.4x
since lnex=x
x=(2.53)0.4
=6.32
Hence x=6.32
Result: x=6.32

Find the log y ( x )given x and y in the form of a number.

So I was doing logs trying to reteach myself pre-calculus and I noticed I don't remember how to turn logs in to numbers. I tried to calculate the log 4 8 so I turned it in to 4 x = 8 and then realized that 8 = 4 1 4 = 4 1.5 . Isn't there a method to calculate the answer even when it is an irrational number?

What is solution of this equation
I am new to logarithms, I am confused what to do when any constant is raised to a power such as 1+logx .
As in this equation, 91+logx31+logx210=0
While I try to take log on both sides, things get messy.
All the logs have base 3.

logarithmic derivative of x e ( x 2 + cos x )
I'm having a hard time taking the derivative of
f ( x ) = x e ( x 2 + c o s x ) .
I'm aware that I have to take the logarithm of both sides.
ln ( y ) = ln ( x e ( x 2 + cos x ) ) = ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + cos x )
Which I tried to untie, so lets start: First I use the product rule:
1 y y = 1 x e ( x 2 + cos x ) + ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + cos x )
Next the power rule:
1 y y = 1 x e ( x 2 + cos x ) + ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + c o s x ) x 2 + cos x e ( x 2 + cos x ) 1
Then I bring the y to the right:
y = y ( 1 x e ( x 2 + cos x ) + ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + cos x ) x 2 + cos x e ( x 2 + cos x ) 1 2 x sin x )
And exchange y with the term:
y = x e ( x 2 + cos x ) ( 1 x e ( x 2 + cos x ) + ln ( x ) e ( x 2 + cos x ) x 2 + cos x e ( x 2 + cos x ) 1 2 x sin x )
This is extremely overwhelming for me and I have absolutely no clue if this is right, I looked in to the result of wolfram and It doesn't seem to be correct. Any help would be appreciated.
