Not sure if I'm doing this right

Ln(3x-4)-Ln(x+1)=Ln(2)

My solution:
Ln 3x-4/x+1 =Ln2
3x-4/x+1=2/1
2x+2=3x-4
2=x-4
6=x

yes you are correct, but you must put brackets when typing in this format.
On paper you probably extend the fraction bar over the (x+1) but the way you typed it, it would be understood as
3x - 4/x + 1 as 3 separate terms on the left side
