Greetings all, I have a slight problem solving this equation ..... 3^2x+1 = 3^x + 24(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know I can solve it with logs but I'm just not sure where to begin. I have tried taking logarithms both sides but it didn't work

Perhaps someone could give me a clue

thanks
