*does*one solve this?

## Homework Statement

Solve for [itex]x[/itex]:

[tex]\frac{(x-1)^2}{(x-1)-^6\log (x-1)} = 3 \times 6^{3\times^6\log 2 + 2\times^6\log 3}[/tex]

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I went ahead and simplified this to

[tex]y^2 -72y + 72 ^6\log y=0[/tex]

where [itex]y=x-1[/itex], but, as I said, I never learned how to solve this type of equation involving both polynomial terms and logarithms and I don't know how to proceed.
