The problem is:

ln(x

^{2})=log

_{5}(x-1)

I have no idea how to solve it. I've tried several different methods of condensing and expanding the problem but I still can't get it to where I can solve it.

One way I've gotten is 2log

_{e}X=log

_{5}(X-1) but still I get lost there. I think its the (X-1) that keeping me from knowing what to do.

Please Help!

Thanks
