where 10 is a base

kanade Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
since there is no base im assuming that they are the same. then you can use rules of logarithems

You can simplify the denominator a lot to look like the numerator, and all the logs cancel out leaving a fraction

I work with the denominator first and simplify as much as i can, then i look at the fraction as a whole.

all the logarithms are of the same base... so that doesn't need to be changed then look at the arguments of the log function .Notice that alot of them are multiples of 3.Using the basic log rules that joe gave you a link to.convert all the arguments to either 2 or 3. cancel out the 4log3 types terms.....giving you (log2 +log3)/(16log2+16log3)

@kanade no, it's \[^{4} \log_{3} \] like \[^{10}\log_{10} \] Thank you! i got it now
