# Solve log equations problem

Input

```
var('x')
solve((log((x**2 - x), 6) - log((6*x - 10), 6) == 0), x)
```

Output

```
[log(x^2 - x) == log(6*x - 10)]
```

But real roots are 5 and 2. What I doing wrong?

solve((log((x**2 - x), 6) - log((6*x - 10), 6) == 0), x,to_poly_solve=True)

I have no problems with 5:

```
sage: solve((log((x**2 - x), 6) - log((6*x - 10), 6) == 0), x,to_poly_solve=True)
[x == 2, x == 5]
```

Trigonometric Equation Solving: Not Terminating

why can't sage solve the equation x^n == 2*x ?

exponential equation solve problem

strange behaviour when solving equations symbolically

determine consistency of nonlinear system of equations

Solving equation with algebraic numbers

Finding solution of expression with fractional power

Why can Sage solve one log equation, but not another with only different values?
