### How to solve nonlinear equation having floating values?

I'm trying to solve which simplify to this form:

a^x = b


eg. solve([(123)^y==(234234)],y)

which returns [y == log(234234)/log(123)]

but solve([(123.123)^y==(234234.123)],y) returns

[123123^y == 234234123*1000^(y - 1)]


How do I get it to return the answer in terms of log.

eg. solve([(123)^y==(234234)],y)

which returns [y == log(234234)/log(123)]

but solve([(123.123)^y==(234234.123)],y) returns
