solve log(7x-3)+2log(5)=2+log(x+3)

I've attempted to do this question and I ended up with log(7-3)+log(5^2)-log(x+3)=2 but I don't what to do next or whether I did something wrong.

write is as

log((7x-3)(25)/(x+3) = 2

25(7x - 3)/(x+3) = 10^2 = 100

divide by 25

(7x-3)(x+3) = 4

cross-multiply

7x-3 = 4x+12

3x = 15

x = 5

check:

LS = log 32 + log 25 - log 8

= log(32(25)/8)

= log 100

= 2

= RS

Just wondering what did you do in this log((7x-3)(25)/(x+3) = 2 to get 25(7x - 3)/(x+3) = 10^2 = 100?
