    \frac{1}{2}\ln \left|x-2\right|-\frac{1}{2}\ln \left|x\right|

    I simplified it to:


     \ln \left(\frac{x-2}{x}\right)

    but the book has a different Answer. It has

    \dfrac{1}{2} \ln(\dfrac{x-2}{x})

    I simplified it to:

    Unparseable or potentially dangerous latex formula. Error 4: no dvi output from LaTeX. It is likely that your formula contains syntax errors or worse.
    ln\left(\frac{\left(x-2\right)^{\frac{1}{2}{\:x^{\frac {1}{2}\right)


     \ln \left(\frac{x-2}{x}\right)
    1/2 ln(x) is the same as ln(x^1/2)

    m8 just factor out the 1/2 first before combining the logs, your answer is missing the 1/2
