    I am so tired of Logs

    Been trying so hard
    Solve for :
    so I come up with
    log3x+log3(x+3) I combine them into log3(x^2+3x)-log36=0
    then I tired to make it into a quadratic formula to solve it that way but didn't work.
    Do I need to change it into exponent form to solve?

    That becomes x(x+3)=6
