figured it out by trial and error but wondering if there is an explanation or mathematical formula that leads to the answer.

Yes I too am wondering if there is a mathematical way to do this. I tried finding the derivative of the equation to get the minimum value that it would produce but (3^a)(ln3) + (5^b)(ln5) + (7^c)(ln7) never equals 0. Is this question truly guess and check?
