doing some basic personal finance question here and for the life of me just cant figure it out.

here is the equation:
(1 + x)(0.20) - x(0.10) = 0.26

trying to solve for x, but I just can't figure it out.
I know the answer is 0.6, but how the fuck do you get it?
Should be a pretty straight forward question....me = Dunce, I guess.

0.2+0.2x-0.1x = 0.26
0.1x = 0.06
x = 0.6

solve

\int_0^1 \log \log (1/x) \frac{dx}{1+x^2} = \frac{\pi}{2}\log (\sqrt{2\pi} \Gamma(3/4) / \Gamma(1/4))
