Problems with sage solve.

asked 2017-05-01 10:40:07 -0500

So I have this equation:

eq = 20000 * 1.02^x + 200 * (1 - 1.02^x) / (1 - 1.02) == 30000

And sage gives me this solution with solve(eq, x):

[51^x=4/3⋅50^x]

Why doesnt it give me just the x value?

Please help, thanks.

eq = 20000 * 1.02^x + 200 * (1 - 1.02^x) / (1 - 1.02) == 30000
eq2 = solve(eq,x)[0]
solve(log(eq2).canonicalize_radical(),x)

I don't understand the answer. Could you be more explicit, please? I'm having a similar problem:

sage: f=4.94 * 1.062^x

sage: solve(f(x) == 15, x)

[531^x == 750/247*500^x]
