Solve: log(sub6)x+log(sub6)(x-5) = 2

2. Relevant equations

na?

3. The attempt at a solution

i multiplied the second log out and got:

log(sub6)x+log(sub6)x-log(sub6)5 = 2

then i put the x's on one side and the numbers on the other.

2(log(sub6)x) = 2+log(sub6)5

but i have no idea how to go from there. or maybe i multiplied it out wrong?
