Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um i took log base 1/3 as log base 3^1 and that will be \[\log_{3} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0log3(log2,x) + log1/3(log2,y) =1 log3(log2,x)  log3(log2,y) =1 log3(log2,x/log2,y) =1 log3(x/y) =1 x/y=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0replace 1 with log base 3 of 3 then: \[\log_{3}(\log_{2}x)  \log_{3}(\log_{2}y) = \log_{3}3 \] then:\[\log_{2}x / \log_{2}y = 3\] \[\log_{y}x = 3 \] y^3 = x so y is 4^0.2 x = 4^0.6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0xy^2 becomes y^5 so y^5 =4 so y = 4^0.2 and x = y^3 = 4^0.6
