\[\log (5x) = \log(10  3x)\] Is that the question?

Do you agree that 5x = 10  3x ?

i understand that one now though. but another one of the questions is log a=og(4a9) and the answer is supposed to be 3 but i'm getting 2.25

I don't think you can have a negative log tho :/ so no real solutions?

log a = log(4a  9) Now: a = 4a  9 3a = 9 a = 3

wait i'm sorry can i ask another question? ( i was absent when this was all being taught) but how would you solve 4log39m=4? since there's no log on the right side of the equation?

\[4\log(39m)=4 \] ?

taranicoleeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
\[4\log _{3}9m=4\] (:

slaaibakBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
wait, that doesn't make sense. \[4\log_3(9m)=4 \]

maybe that's how it's supposed to be. it just doesn't show up like that on the worksheet.

Assuming that's the question: First divide both side by 4: \[\log_3(9m) = 1\] Now, you need to know this property of logarithms: \[a^x = b\] \[\log_a b = x\] \[a^x = b\] Now your problem: \[\log_3(9m) = 1 \rightarrow 3^1 = 9m\] \[m={1 \over 3}\]
