    I assume that lgx means \log_{10}x and ln2x means \log_e2x (= \log_e2 + \log_ex).

    In which case, you need to know that \log_{10}x = \frac{\log_ex}{\log_e10}. So the equation becomes:

    \frac{\log_ex}{\log_e10} + \log_e2 + \log_ex = 3

    \Rightarrow \log_ex\left(\frac{1}{\log_e10} + 1\right)= 3 - \log_e2

    Can you finish it from here?
