    \[ \large \begin{array}{rcl} (2x)^{\ln2}&=&(3y)^{\ln3} \\ \ln(2x)\ln(2)&=&\ln(3y)\ln(3) \\ \ln(2)\ln(2) +\ln(2) \ln(x) &=&\ln(3)\ln(y)+\ln(3)\ln(3) \\ \ln(2) \ln(x) - \ln(3)\ln(y) &=&\ln(3)\ln(3)-\ln(2)\ln(2) \end{array} \] \[ \large \begin{array}{rcl} 3^{\ln x}&=&2^{\ln y} \\ \ln(3)\ln (x)&=&\ln(2)\ln (y) \\ \ln(3)\ln (x) - \ln(2)\ln (y) &=& 0 \end{array} \] \[ \begin{bmatrix} \ln(2)&-\ln(3) \\ \ln(3)&- \ln(2) \end{bmatrix} \begin{bmatrix} \ln(x) \\ \ln(y) \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} \ln(3)\ln(3)-\ln(2)\ln(2) \\ 0 \end{bmatrix} \]

    If you put it into a matrix, it's not as big a mess.

    then at the very end raise it to the power of \(e\). It could be a singular matrix though?
