Solve the equation

log base 7 (7x+8) = log base 7 (7x+3)

2. Relevant equations

I don't think you use equations for this, just the properties of logarithms

3. The attempt at a solution

I thought since they have the same base you could set the parts in parenthesis equal to each other

(7x+8) = (7x+3)

so you get

8=3 or

5=0

but that can't be right...
