Find all solutions to

` ` `3x - 2^(x) -1 = 0`

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

Let us define a function

`f(x)=3x-2^x-1`

The zero of the function f(x) is the root of equation

`3x-2^x-1=0`

We can find the zero of the method either by graphical ethod or some numerical methods.We prefer graphical method here

`f(1)=3xx1-2^1-1=0`

`f(3)=3xx3-2^3-1=0`

**Thus 1 and 3 are zeros of f(x). So 1 and 3 are roots of the given **** equation.**
