1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Solve ln(2x+1)=2-ln(x) for x. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution e^(ln(2x+1)) = e^((2-ln(x)) 2x + 1 = e^(2/x) 2x^2 + x = e^2 2x^2+x-e^2 = 0 At this point, I know you're supposed to use the quadratic equation. But, my problem is with how to treat e^2. Should I multiply it out in the discriminant where c = e^2? or just e? Thanks for any help.
