49^3x = 343^(x+1), 3x*Log49 = (x+1)*Log343, Divide both sides by Log49: 3x = (x+1)*Log343/Log49, 3x = 1.5*(x+1), 3x = 1.5x + 1.5, 3x-1.5x = 1.5, X = 1. So the 2x in your Eq should be x.

49^3x = 343^(2x+1). 3x*Log49 = (2x+1)*Log343, Divide both sides by the Log of 49: 3x = (2x+1)*Log343/Log49, 3x = 1.5(2x+1), 3x = 3x+1.5, 3x-3x = 1.5. No solution? Please make sure the problem is copied correctly.
