Answer:

Other than using a calculator to find the (approximate) value,
there is no simplification of #ln 5#

Explanation:

We could note that if we let our solution be represented by #x#, then
#color(white)("XXX")e^x=5#
but that really doesn't simplify the expression.

Using a calculator you could determine that
#color(white)("XXX")ln 5 ~~1.609437912#
