## [SOLVED] Log Help

Hi,

I need help solving a log equation for x algebraically:

This is the equation:**2log2(x-6) - log2x = 3**

Help is much appreciated!This is what I have so far:

**2log2(x-6) - log2x = 3**(both logs are base 2)

**log2(x-6)^2 - log2x = 3**

Im not sure what the next step I should take to solve is?

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Jim.
