# Strange Solutions

Sometimes the solutions given by Sage are weird. For example, the equation below has only one solution, yet sage gives this output.

```
sage: solve(0.1*1==1*e^(-0.38*t),t)
[t == 50*log(10^(1/19)*e^(2/19*I*pi)),
t == 50*log(10^(1/19)*e^(4/19*I*pi)),
t == 50*log(10^(1/19)*e^(6/19*I*pi)),
t == 50*log(10^(1/19)*e^(8/19*I*pi)),
t == 50*log(10^(1/19)*e^(10/19*I*pi)),
t == 50*log(10^(1/19)*e^(12/19*I*pi)),
t == 50*log(10^(1/19)*e^(14/19*I*pi)),
t == 50*log(10^(1/19)*e^(16/19*I*pi)),
t == 50*log(10^(1/19)*e^(18/19*I*pi)),
t == -900/19*I*pi + 50/19*log(10),
t == -800/19*I*pi + 50/19*log(10),
t == -700/19*I*pi + 50/19*log(10),
t == -600/19*I*pi + 50/19*log(10),
t == -500/19*I*pi + 50/19*log(10),
t == -400/19*I*pi + 50/19*log(10),
t == -300/19*I*pi + 50/19*log(10),
t == -200/19*I*pi + 50/19*log(10),
t == -100/19*I*pi + 50/19*log(10),
t == 50/19*log(10)]
