    y = 3 log5(x) this is the normal "log" graph but you use the base 5 numbers. then the graph is stretched by a factor of 3 so it becomes "taller" in every spot

    it is probably easier to graph the 5^(3x) and then flip it around the y=x line to get your log(5)

    why would you graph 5^(3x) ?

    3 log5(x) = y log5(x) = y/3 5^(y/3) = x sorry, got lost in my head :) this is the inverse you want...its just easier to graph
