# How do you solve x- ln x=0?

Oct 21, 2015

I do not think this equation is true.

#### Explanation:

Write rearranging:
$x = \ln \left(x\right)$

but this is not possible!

A way to see this is by comparing the graphs of $y = x$ (blue) and $y = \ln \left(x\right)$ (orange):

They will nevar meet each other or simply they will never cross each other.
