Please help me?

ln(x+1)-ln(x-2)=ln(5)

1. Solve equation by setting up algebraically.
2. Use appropriate properties of Logarithm to reduce the number of logarithmic terms to only one.
3. Solve logarithmic equation.

  • calculus -

    ln(x + 1) - ln(x + 2) = ln5,

    2. ln((x + 1) / (x + 2))) = ln5.

    3. ln((x + 1) / (x + 2)) = 1.6094,
    (x + 1) / (x + 2) = e^1.6094,
    (x + 1) / (x + 2) = 5,
    Cross multiply:
    5X + 10 = X + 1,
    5X - X = 1 - 10,
    4X = - 9,
    X = -2 1/4 = -9/4.

    CORRECTION:I copied the problem wrong.

    ln(x + 1) - ln(x - 2) = ln5.

    2. ln((x + 1) / (x - 2)) = ln5.

    3. ln((x + 1) / (x - 2)) = 1.6094,
    (x + 1) / (x - 2) = e^1.6094,
    (x + 1) / (x - 2) = 5,
    Cross multiply:
    5X - 10 = X + 1,
    5X - X = 1 + 10,
    4X = 11,
    X = 2 3/4 = 11/4.
