Solve for x: log3(x^2-4)-log3(x+2)=2

  • math -

    log3(x^2-4)-log3(x+2)=2
    log3 [(x^2-4)/x+2)] = 2
    log3 [(x+2)(x-2)/(x+2)] = 2
    log3 (x-2) = 2
    x-2 = 3^2
    x = 11

  • math -

    log3 (x^2-4) -log3 (x+2)=2
    log3 [(x^2-4)/x+2)] = 2
    log3 [(x+2)(x-2)/(x+2)] = 2
    log3 (x-2) = 2
    x-2 = 3^2
    x = 11

    Adam, why would you just cut-and-paste my solution and claim it as yours ?

    You didn't even bother to fix my error in the 2nd line, where I missed a bracket.

    Hi i need to find x in 9^(2x-6)=6^(8x-5) So what i did was: 3^(4x-12)=6^(8x-5) log3(3)^(4x-12)=log3(6)^(8x-5) 4x-12=(8x-5)log3(6) now i'm stuck. and i actually feel that the whole thing is wrong. help, pls
