I've been trying to solve this equation for more than an hour already and I still get the wrong answer: log5 (x) - log25 (x) + log125 (x) = 5 The answer is 5^6 or 15,625 but I keep getting 5^(15/2) for some reason.

There's some pretty nasty log bases there. Have you tried to change base? i.e.
I tried solving the equation with base Ln, but i get lost with the fractions and I get a very ugly number, so to speak
Maybe you can work backwards given
I did that just to make sure the answer was correct, but I still didn't get anywhere
Can you carry on from there now?
