    Does the log contain the sum of both combinations? (Then you should have added more brackets)

    Sorry I formulated the inequality wrong. It's fixed now.

    The log only contains the binomial.

    I think it might be easier just to do this numerically...

    You can try to do:

    2^LH = 2^RH

    But I think the best approach is a numerical method.
