1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data ln(x^2 + 1 ) -3lnx=ln2 Solve for x. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I used laws of logarithms to simplify it down to -x^2(x-1)=1 . I don't think this is the answer I'm under the impression you need x = for the answer. First I brought the 3 up to a exponent and then put everything e^ to get rid of the ln's. Could someone please point me in the right direction.
