    So the answer in the back is x=2, I also got this as one of two answers - the other being x=3/5. Any ideas apart from David Rayner and Paul Williams being a pair of pricks?

    Remember, you can't take logs of a negative thing. So x=3/5 is meaningless to ln(5x-6)

    Edit: Having thought about it, I guess you could take lns of a negative thing. If ln(ab) = ln(a) + ln(b) then I guess ln(-x) = ln(x) + ln(-1), and because we know e^ipi=-1, then ln(-1) would be ipi. But regardless, that still means x=3/5 wouldn't be an answer

    Beautiful.
    But yes, it's only x = 2
