    Putting this in a better grouping you get [tex] 3log(5-x)=log(35-x^{3}) [/tex]

    Take the anti-log of both sides from there.

    [tex] \frac {\ln x} {\ln y} \neq \ln ( \frac x y) [/tex] so what you have is not correct.

    Your first step should be

    [tex] \ln (35- x ^3) = 3 \ln (5-x) [/tex]

    Can you proceed from there?
