    use x=144/y or y=144/x to get the equation into one variable

    if x,y >0, log of y(x) +(x)=10/3 log of x(y)=10/3 and xy=144 then what is the value of x+y/2? Does that answer your question?

    write it out more clearly, one equation per line using parenthesis to show what is in the log

    x,y>0 log y (x)+log x(y)=10/3

    and xy=144 what is the value of (x+y)/2?

    when you write out the log you need to show what is part of the log: log(x)y is different than log(xy) and so on

    put the parenthesis first after to the log indicating that what is in the parenthesis is part of the log, that should be how you write it on your homework so it's clear

    log base y (x)+ log base x (y)
