 Question 21004: I can't peice it together... (x+1)ln2 = xln5 please solve for xAnswer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(x+1)ln2 = xln5 First use the distributive property: x ln2 + ln 2 = x ln5 As in all simple equation solving, get all the x terms on one side, so subtract x ln2 from each side: In order to get the x in one place, you must factor out the common factor of x on the right side: Divide both sides by (ln5 - ln2): approximately R^2 at SCC
