Solve for x if 5+lnx=14/lnx.

substitute y=ln(x) ....(1)
to get
5+y=14/y
Solve the resulting quadratic equation in y.
Note that the domain of ln(x) is ℝ+\0, reject the value of y≤0.
Solve for x from (1) above. 
ok, so i got e^7 and e^2
does that mean i reject e^7 because its less than or equal to 0? 
Your answers are correct,
x=e^{7} or x=e².
In fact, the value of y in y=ln(x) can be anything in ℝ, so your answers are correct. The restriction for nonnegative values are on x only. My apologies.

Find lim x>1+ of [(1/(x1))(1/lnx)]. Here is my work... =(lnx(x1)) / ((x1)(lnx)) =(lnx1) / (lnx+ (x+1)/x) This becomes(1/x) / ((1/x)+(1/x^2)) which becomes 1/ (1/x^2) This equals 1/2. I understand the answer has to be 1/2, …

Find the derivative of y with respect to x. y=(x^6/6)(lnx)(x^6/36) So far this is what I've gotten: y=(x^6/6)(lnx)(x^6/36) y=(1/6)x^6(lnx)(1/36)x^6 y'=(1/6)x^5(1/x)+lnx(x^5)(1/6)x^5 What do I do now?
