2021-07-11 18:37:41 +0100 | marked best answer | Solve cannot get algebraic answer without taking logarithm I'm trying to solve the simple, one variable equation: I am new to Sage, so I assume that I am doing something wrong. I like the Jupyter notebook interface and am hoping to use SageMath as my "go to" tool. Mathematica, wolframalpha, and Mathcad 6 (mupad symbolic engine) solve this as is (x=4/5). Sage and Mathcad 7 (new symbolic engine) both seem to require what would be the first step if I were to do manual solve -- take log of both sides. SageMath 9.2 Fails: Works: |
