Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Depends on what you are doing, if you are expanding the log you could write it as: log(2) + log(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The only part you need to fix is that (ln(5x^2)) should be (ln(5)+2ln(x))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because in the problem only x is raised to the 2nd power and not the 5. the ln(2x1) is in simplest form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So that must be the answer, right? Of course changing 2(ln5+lnx) by ln5+2lnx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0exactly (also make sure that end is in parentheses and negated as it's in the denominator)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I suppose this is the answer
