bit confused on how to find the x?

Now we have
which can be factored as follows
by the null factor law
and bring our original unknown back into the picture
Does this make sense?

bit confused on how to find the x? This can't be solved because it doesn't equal anything. Also, use parentheses to avoid confusion. You could mean e^(2)*x or e^(2x).
Thanks Jameson, my solution only assumes the expression is equal to zero.
okay, that makes a lot of sense so there are two answers technically and I forgot to take the ln of the 2 and 5. that is where i was going wrong..thanks so much!
