not entirely sure what to do... anyone thing they could help?

log4(5-x) - log4(3-x) = 2 x<3

Haha i just did this one 5 minutes ago

So you re-arrange to log_{4}(5-x)-log_{4}(3-x)=log_{4}4^2 Remember : log_{4}4=1

Then you can cancel out the logs:

(5-x)/(3-x)=4^2

16(3-x)=(5-x)

48-16x=5-x

5-15x=48

-15x=43

x=-43/15

Hope this helped! Any questions just reply back.

Yeah!
