    need help with ln problem

    ln [x/ (1-x)] = 1.5014
    What is x?

    How do I go about solving this problem?

    The only thing I've come up with so far is
    ln p -ln(1-p)=1.5014
    but that doesn't really help me.



    thanks

    Remember that e^{\ln(x)} = x... where e is the exponential function.

    Taking exponentials of both sides gives you...

    \frac{x}{1-x} = e^{1.5014}

    Can you finish?
