What is the topic you are learning?

You can see you cannot get an exact answer, so I need to know whether you are learning approximation.

thanks. this is a question from topic of log, in I B mathematics text book. I can only solve it by graphical method as I was trained in HKCEE level. do you think it can be solved by numerical method? or any secret method taught in IB syllabus only? thanks again.:)

Surely the answer can be "approximately solved" by numerical methods, it depends on which numerical methods you have learnt:
bisection method, secant method, Newton's method, iteration method, etc.

You can also solve that graphically as you said.
3^x = 3 - x
log(3^x) = log(3 - x)
xlog(3) = log(3 - x)
It depends on what graphs you have.
