ln x^5 - ln x^2 = 3 solve for the unknown.

I have reviewed my Log laws but yet I still cannot figure out what the answers are. The question asks for me to write all answers as a comma separated list. can anyone please help?

I would do it exactly the same way, and get the same answer.

Don't know why your prof told you it was wrong..

Here is another way to do it:

using log(A/B) = logA - logB

ln x^5 - ln x^2 = 3

ln (x^5/x^2) = 3

log x^3 = 3

3logx = 3

log x = 1

x = e^1 = e

same answer as before.
