basically I want to get this equation x = log (x) * 3 to work in C++. I have #include <math.h> in the header, but its not working right. ALso I need "ln" not "log". how can I do that?

Define "not working right". Compile error? Link error? Runtime error? Bad result?

If you want the natural log, you can divide log(x) by log(e).

ok, nvm. I got it working. For some reason I had x =1 and it was just giving me garbage like, 3jkl2. But changing x to any other number works.

And despite you having already solved your problem, I'm bored and need to say things...

True, but unnecessary since log() already is natural log in the CRT.

If e^0==1 then ln(1)==0 so if you iterate and pass x=1 then you will eventually find yourself doing ln(0) ... which you can't.
