You will find this problem MUCH easier if you simplify the logarithm first: $\displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} \ln{ \left( \frac{x + 1}{x - 1} \right) } = \ln{ \left( x + 1 \right) } - \ln{ \left( x - 1 \right) } \end{align*}$.

Thanks. I thought about using the quotient rule for logs but it was just a thought. I will tackle this question again today.
