    natural logarithmic rules of the form ln(a-c)

    Hi,

    Is there any way for me to simplify the expression below? Preferably with theta isolated outside of the natural log?

    The only thing you could do is to factorise the expression, but that still won't isolate theta.

    Even then, h^{\theta} - g^{\theta} can't really be factored (unless \theta is an integer).

    Thanks for helping me confirm that there's no further simplification possible.
