Solve for x if 5+lnx=14/lnx.

substitute y=ln(x) ....(1)
to get
5+y=14/y
Solve the resulting quadratic equation in y.
Note that the domain of ln(x) is ℝ+\0, reject the value of y≤0.
Solve for x from (1) above. 
ok, so i got e^7 and e^2
does that mean i reject e^7 because its less than or equal to 0? 
Your answers are correct,
x=e^{7} or x=e².
In fact, the value of y in y=ln(x) can be anything in ℝ, so your answers are correct. The restriction for nonnegative values are on x only. My apologies.
