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

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known dataI

I have to change this to one term only, the valid answer is: log (x + 1)

The term is: 2 log (x^{2}- 1) - log (x + 1) - 2 log (x - 1)

2. Relevant equations

Logarithmic laws:

x log n = log n^{x}

log m - log n = log (m/n)

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried dividing them but I don't see to be getting anywhere or anywhere close at all at the answer, I also tried factorising but I cannot figure it out, I'm pretty sure that it has some factorization (perfect squares? not sure what they're called in english..)

Thank you in advanced, this forum is a very useful resource!
