So we are looking at
log16 (9x+5) - log16</sub (x^2 - 1) = 1/2
log16</sub [(9x+5)/(x^2-1)] = 1/2
(9x+5)/(x^2-1) = 16^(1/2)
(9x+5)/(x^2-1) = 4
4x^2 - 4 = 9x + 5
4x^2 - 9x - 9 = 0
(x-3)(4x + 3) = 0
x = 3 or x = -3/4
but when x = -3/4, the first log term is undefined (we can't take a log of a negative)
so x = 3
Algebra II - Solve for x. log x + log 4x = 2
Algebra II - Solve for X. log(x^2-9)-1=log(x+3)
