It is Year 2, Chapter 1, Simplify fully (a) x^2+2x-24 over 2x^2+10x times by x^2-3x over x^2+3x-18 (I understand) I don't get (b) Given ln ((x^2+2x-24)(x^2-3x))=2+ln ((2x^2+10x)(x^2+3x-18) find x in terms of e.

Raise e to the power of both sides and see what happens.

It removes ln from both sides

Not quite - what do you think happens to the 2 on the RHS?

Does it become 2 to the power of e or some sort of logarithm? I am not sure.

If you have X = Y + Z, what do you get if you raise e to the power of both sides? (Hint: remember your basic rules of indices)

OK, forget about all the complicated stuff at the moment.

e^x=e^yz -I am sorry if it is wrong..you could just show me solution and I can figure out how it happened

To start you off, what I was getting at was;

So with your example in mind, X is the complicated expression on the left, Y = 2 and Z is the complicated expression on the right after the + sign.

Now remember that exponentiating removes the logarithms and you should get something algebraic to work with that resembles the first part of the question.

Well we're not allowed to post solutions - against the rules of the forum - so if you're struggling I'd suggest going back and revising some of the basics or get assistance from a teacher.

Ok. Can you write down the 2nd step please?

**Searcher2**)Ok. Can you write down the 2nd step please?

where A and B are the rational expressions involving x that I'm not going to type out in full. So when you exponentiate both sides you'll get using standard indices rules.

Now use the fact that is the inverse of ln u to remove the logarithms, and you should get something that looks a lot like a rearrangement of part (a) when you've replaced A and B with the corresponding expressions involving x.
