Although the options are not always, the truth is:x = 5 is a true solution because log₂(16) = 4in order to check if the solution is true, we can plug it back into the original equation. When we substitute x in the equation we get:log₂(5+11) = 4log₂(16) = 44 = 4As the left-hand side of the equation is equal to the right-hand side, the solution is true.
