# Math Help - Logs- solve for x

1. ## Logs- solve for x

I've tried this problem at least 5 times and I still can't get to the right answer

ln(x+1)-1=ln(x-1)

I know the correct answer is x=(e+1)/(e-1), I just can't get it.

Thanks

2. $ln(x+1) -1 = ln(x -1)$

Combine like terms

$ln(x+1) - ln(x-1) = 1$

Now use the identity that $ln(a) - ln(b) = ln(\frac{a}{b})$.

3. Oh yes, thank you!

I had my properties backwards.
