Plenty of ways to go about it.

You can add to both sides then combine RHS into a single log by using the rule
5. remember that ln(e) has a special value
6. The answer is 6. I've tried adding In36 to the other side but I'm not getting an answer of 6

Inx^2-In36=Ine
ln x^2 - ln 36 = ln e
ln e = 1
2ln x= 1 ln 36
x = e^((1 ln 36)/2)

ln e = 1
ln x^2 = ln 36
Note quite. You're basically claiming that

Anyway, no full solutions.

I deities my post thanks for correcting that I was multiplying instead of adding and I forgot about full solution I'll take care next time
