Solve the logarithm equation. Express the solution in exact form only.
log[6](64x^3+1)log[6](4x+1)=1

log[6] ( (64x^3 + 1)/(4x+1) ) = 1
(64x^3+1)/(4x+1) = 6^1
I can reduce the left side ...
(4x+1)(16x^2 4x+1)/(4x+1) = 6
16x^2  4x  5 = 0
x = (4 ± √336)/32
but in log (4x+1) , 4x+1 > 0
x > 1/4, so we have to reject the negative x value
x = (4 + √336)/32
= (4 + 4√21)/32
= (1 + √21)/8
