What type of solution does e^x3x=0 have? a finite number, a surd, a fraction, a combination of constants?

I believe you need Lambert's W function for this problem, so I would call it a transcendental solution. There should be two realvalued solutions (and infinitely many complex solutions).

and can it be written down accurately? for example pi is transcendental, but we can write be instead of 3.14159.... Does the same happen with the solution of x?

You can find as many digits as you wish by using a root finding technique such as Newton's method.

e^x3x=0 e^x=3x e^x=(1/3x) powering both sides to (1/3x) e^(x * (1/3x))=(1/3x)^(1/3x) e^(1/3)=(1/3x)^(1/3x) then 1/3x = ssrt(e^(1/3)) , ssrt is super sequare root used in tetration. ssrt (z) = 1/(z^^n) when n goes to infinity then x = 1/(3*(ssrt(e^(1/3))))

correction ssrt (z) = 1/((1/z)^^n) when n goes to infinity

but ssrt(x) is elementry tool because looks like srt(x). that is why I prefer ssrt(x) than W(x).
