(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the inverse equation (i.e. solve for x)

y=(e^x)/(1+2e^x)

2. The attempt at a solution

e^x = y(1+2e^x)

x = ln(y) + ln(1+2e^x)

???

Profit!

I can't figure out what to do with ln(1+2e^x) to get the x out of there so I can finish isolating x. I tried balancing it another way and ended up with x = ln(e^x - y) - ln(2y) which as far as I can tell is worse. Any suggestions? As far as I can tell I'm probably just missing something obvious but I've been sitting here for a while trying to figure it out...
