    Log and e problem

    If I have ln(elne) do I solve this as

    lne + lne = 1 +1 = 2

    or

    ln(lnee) = ln(e) = 1

    The first variant should say ln(e) + ln(ln(e)) = 1 + ln(1) = 1 + 0 = 1. The second variant is correct.

    You could just treat it like this.

    Equation (1)
    ln(eq), where q=ln(e)

    Given that,
    q=ln(e)\Rightarrow q= 1

    Equation (1) can be rewritten as:
    ln(eq) \Rightarrow ln(1e) \Rightarrow ln(e) = 1
