Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when expanding a logarithm when two terms are being multiplied together the sum of the logarithm of the two taken seperately is equal for example log base 5 of x(y) is equal to log base 5 of x + log base 5 of y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when a term is being divided then you use the difference of the log with the same base for example log base 5 of x/y is equal to log base 5 of x  log base 5 of y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\log5 y(x+2)/x^4 = \log5 y(x+2)  \log5x^4 = \log5y+\log5(x+2)  4\log5x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry the above reply got cut out. \[\log5y(x+2)  \log5x^4 = \log5y + \log5(x+2)  4\log5x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The righthand side of that last post should be your final answer (assuming by log5 you meant base 5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when two or multiple things are being multiplied together in the same log you can separate them with addition when they are being divided then you may use subtraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the way that you wrote the problem x was to the power of 2y^3

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if x is to the power of that entire quantity you can move that quantity to the front of the logarithm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0quantity meaning 2y^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is a parenthesis above the first x

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there should be a end parenthesis after the 2y^3
