Solve for x: log3(x^24)log3(x+2)=2

math 
Reiny,
log3(x^24)log3(x+2)=2
log3 [(x^24)/x+2)] = 2
log3 [(x+2)(x2)/(x+2)] = 2
log3 (x2) = 2
x2 = 3^2
x = 11 
math 
Adam,
log3 (x^24) log3 (x+2)=2
log3 [(x^24)/x+2)] = 2
log3 [(x+2)(x2)/(x+2)] = 2
log3 (x2) = 2
x2 = 3^2
x = 11

Reiny,
Adam, why would you just cutandpaste my solution and claim it as yours ?
You didn't even bother to fix my error in the 2nd line, where I missed a bracket.
