Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need some help!

Doing A'level logarithms and am stuck.

log3(x-1)=log8(x+1)

So far, I have done these steps...

(x-1)log3=(x+1)log8

xlog3-log3=xlog8+log8

xlog3-xlog8-log3-log8

Not sure what to do next to get the solution for x. Everything I do gets the wrong answer. I need an explanation in simple terms!

Any help greatly appreciated!!!
