    Distribute, bring all of the $x$'s to one side and everything else to the right side. Divide both sides by the coefficient of $x$.

    Re: Logarithm

    You titled this "logarithm" as if the logarithms here are the important part of the problem- they are not.

    ln(2) and ln(3) are simply numbers. How would you solve A(2x- 1)= B(3x- 2) for numbers A and B?
