4(5k+4)=3 20k+16=3 -16 -16 20k=-13/20 check: 4(5(-13/20)+4)=3 k=-13/20

actually, do it like this: log_4(5k+4)=3 5k+4=4^3 5k=4^3-4 k=12

i am confused.... what does the log_4 do?
anonymous
  • anonymous
since you have the log with base 4, if you raise the entire left side of the equation to be an exponent of the base, it will drop out and you will be left with the inside of the log function. For example. 10^log_(10)(x) = x

  • anonymous
so the 4 is then placed inside the eqation...?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the 4 is the base of the logarithm. it defines how the logarithm behaves.

so if i had an equation that was like log_6 (eq) =2 then i would make it 6^2 ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah pretty much. you would end up with (eq)=6^2
