    ln(x+4) = ln(2x-3)


    and


    e^(4x+1) = e^(1-x)

    First one drop the ln's, my dog can solve x + 4 = 2x - 3

    Second one take natural logs of both sides to get 4x + 1 = 1 - x

    Again, my dog can solve that so i'm sure you can too.

    Apparently the dogs in Bangladesh have gills. Differential reproductive success or something.

    or if it wants u to simplify them, you can take the one on the right and bring it over....to get ln(x+4) - ln(2x-3) and then have ln(x+4/2x-3)=0

    What's the point?

    You're going to end up with what I posted above.

    ln(x+4/2x-3) = 0

    (x+4/2x-3) = e^0

    (x+4/2x-3) = 1

    x+4 = 2x-3

    ^^^ Why not just drop the ln's and get that straight away?

    ha just making sure he gets where your coming from with dropping the natural logs.....btw ive just posted a thread about a trig problem im facing, you seem like a clever lad, would you give it a look please...I will rep if the answer is clear and makes sense to moi....cheers

    oh i didnt know you drop the ln and the e^
    thanks

    No problem.

    As long as you remember it in future, all is well. :yeah:

    ln(x+4)-ln(2x-3)=0
    ln(x+4/2x-3)=0
    multiply by (e)
    x+4/2x-3=1
    x=7

    e^(4x+1)=e^(1-x)
    multiply by ln both sides
    4x+1=1-x
    x=0

    Survival of the fittest resulted in the dogs mating with fish so their offspring could breathe on land *and* underwater. :cool:

    No. No, I did not. Thats why I can't teach my dog maths.

    But as the water rises, those with gills have greater reproductive success, increasing the allele frequency for gills.
