(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If [tex]ln|y| - ln|y-a| = b[/tex] find y

2. The attempt at a solution

[tex]ln\frac{y}{y-a} = b[/tex]

[tex]\frac{y}{y-a} = e^b[/tex]

[tex]y-e^by = -ae^b[/tex]

[tex]y (-e^b) = -ae^b[/tex]

[tex]-y = \frac{-ae^b}{e^b}[/tex]

[tex]y = a[/tex]

I know thats not right.. let me know where I went wrong
