# Natural Logarithmic Equation ln (x-1) - ln x = ln 49

The equation ln (x-1) - ln x = ln 49 has to be solved.

Use the property ln x - ln y = ln(x/y)

ln (x-1) - ln x = ln 49

=> ln((x - 1)/x) = ln 49

(x - 1)/x = 49

=> x - 1 = 49x

=> 48x = -1

=> x = -1/48

But the logarithm of a negative number does not exist.

**The equation has no solution.**
