I'm frozen trying to solve this equation:

(a^(x-1))(x-b) = c

I need to solve this for x, somehow. Can anyone lend a hand, or at least point me in the right direction?

I just had this question on my quiz in maths (strange, eh?) but I didn't understand it. Sorry.

No, it's Till Lindemann.

And there's a mathematics topic in here somewhere. You'd be better off posting it there. I'm afraid I have no clue about your equation.

EDIT: bah, nevermind. That's one weird equation.

b+(c/(a^(x-1))=x

You have x on both sides of the equation.

If (x-1) wasn't raised by the base a, then it would be a piece of cake, but that makes the problem a bit more difficult, especially since you'll have to use logarithms.

If I can figure it out, I'll post it later.
