How to solve this equation with pari gp ...
I don't know how to put the solve command on the pari gp command line to solve logarithmic equations. Can somebody help me.

As I was taught by Paul Underwood,
To get log (x) in base n use log(x)/log(n) PariGP gives the natural log of the number otherwise known as ln(x) by the rest of the world.:smile: 
I mean how to solve for example 2 ^ x 5 = 6. Using the solve command

[CODE]? ?solve
solve(X=a,b,expr): real root of expression expr (X between a and b), where expr(a)*expr(b)<=0.[/CODE] Your sample equation boils down to 2^x+1=0, which doesn't have real roots. Let's try with an equation that does. 2^x5==0. We need to know an interval (a,b) where [B]a[/B] root lies. We know that 2^2 < 5 < 2^3. So let's try (2,3) [CODE]? solve(x=2, 3, 2^x5) %2 = 2.3219280948873623478703194294893901759[/CODE] 
It would be solve(2^x=8); For example

No. You give a real valued expression in one variable, and it will find one realvalued solution where the expression becomes zero. So you recast your equation as 2^x8=0 and just give the left side of the equality as input. [CODE]? solve(t=0,10,2^t8) %1 = 3.0000000000000000000000000000000000000[/CODE] 
[QUOTE=axn;551981][CODE]? ?solve
solve(X=a,b,expr): real root of expression expr (X between a and b), where expr(a)*expr(b)<=0.[/CODE][/QUOTE] What is missing here is that you need a continuous function. Otherwise the result is crap: [CODE] ? solve(x=0,3,if(x<2,1,1)) %3 = 1.9999999999999999999999999999999999999 ? [/CODE] 
What I want to know is how is used solve command.

[CODE]?solve
solve(X=a,b,expr): real root of expression expr (X between a and b), where expr(a)*expr(b)<=0. [/CODE] For logarithmic equations use pen and paper and an internet search engine.

Good question, it is not binary search, it should be another root finding algorithm. Btw in some really trivial cases the solve breaks: [CODE] ? solve(x=1,2,x^3) *** at toplevel: solve(x=1,2,x^3) *** ^ *** sorry, solve recovery [too many iterations] is not yet implemented. *** Break loop: type 'break' to go back to GP prompt break> [/CODE] What is interesting is that their approx roots was so close to the x=0 solution, don't know why they haven't aborted the search. [CODE] ? solve(x=1,2,print(x);x^3) 1.0000000000000000000000000000000000000 2.0000000000000000000000000000000000000 0.66666666666666666666666666666666666667 0.53132832080200501253132832080200501253 0.39585716304753417148752640416134559761 0.80207141847623291425623679791932720119 0.26729770261219306942169777701737070320 ... 4.1842288737629149621829297627585343823 E26 8.5184705351226720431227968573430956740 E26 2.8383161799160252299934361727339277773 E26 *** at toplevel: solve(x=1,2,print(x);x^3) *** ^ *** sorry, solve recovery [too many iterations] is not yet implemented. *** Break loop: type 'break' to go back to GP prompt [/CODE]
