Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(x+1)\ln(2)=x\ln(3)\] multiply out on the left get \[\ln(2)x+\ln(2)=\ln(3)x\] put all term with \(x\) on the right get \[\ln(2)=\ln(3)x\ln(2)x\] factor out an \(x\) get \[\ln(2)=(\ln(3)\ln(2))x\] and finally divide to get \[\frac{\ln(2)}{\ln(3)\ln(2)}=x\]
