write your equation as ln(x+1) = -x

now let the left side by

y = ln(x+1) and the right side

y = -x

and make a quick sketch of each on the same x-y plane.

the first one is the log function crossing the x axis at the origin, slowing rising in the first quadrant, and dropping down into the third quadrant.

the other graph is a straigh line with slope of -1 and passing through the origin.

Clearly they can only cross at x=0, which becomes your only answer.

check : if x=0

LS = 0 + ln(0+1)

= 0 + 0 = 0 = RS
