**1. Homework Statement**

a. Sketch the graph of y= ln(3x)

b. The normal to the curve at Point Q, with x coordinate q, passes through the origin. Find the equation of the normal and the value of q

**2. Homework Equations**

I don’t know which to use

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Part a was not too difficult and I was able to do that

However I have no idea how to tackle part b. I have only been able to express the gradient of the normal as

*-q*, but cannot solve it. I think [but am not sure] that I can get to the equation

ln3q + q^2 = 0

but I cannot solve this.

I would be very grateful for some help.

Thanks
