      if you insert x=8.34 into your calculator for this problem it will give you a result of 2.999963804

      if the bases are not given. Then normally they can both be taken to the base 10, common log.

      log 5(x+1)* 4(x+1) = 3

      20 (x+1)sq = 10 cubed

      x = 50sqroot - 1

      x equal very close to 6
