    Make the substitution u=e^x and solve a quadratic equation.

     \displaystyle 2e^{2x}=e^{x-2}

\displaystyle  2e^{2x}=e^xe^{-2} 

\displaystyle  2e^{2x}= \frac{e^x}{e^2}

\displaystyle 2e^{2x}e^2=e^x

    Can you complete it?

    Is it 2e^(2x)=e^(x-2) or 2e^(2x)=(e^x)-2 or something else

    Make the equation equal to zero and factorise e^x.

    If you don't like factorising quadratics you could go this way:

    2e^(2x) = e^(x-2)
    2 X e^x X e^x = e^x X e^-2
    2 X e^x = e^-2
    e^x = 1/2 e^-2
    x = ln (1/2 e^-2)
