## Homework Statement

Solve ln(2x+1)=2-ln(x) for x.

## Homework Equations

## 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.
