Could someone please solve this log equation please? Much appreciated! log5(x+1) + log4(x+1) = 3

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
