#### Answer

$\ln{1.25}-1$

#### Work Step by Step

Divide $4$ to both sides of the equation to obtain: $e^{x+1}=\dfrac{5}{4}$ $e^{x+1}=1.25$ $\because e^y=x \text{ is equivalent to } y=\ln{x}$ $\therefore e^{x+1} = 1.25 \text{ is equivalent to } x+1=\ln{1.25}$ Solve the equation above to obtain: \begin{align*} x+1&=\ln{1.25}\\ x&=\ln{1.25}-1\end{align*}
