Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\log (5x) = \log(10  3x)\] Is that the question?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I don't think you can have a negative log tho :/ so no real solutions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[4\log(39m)=4 \] ?

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0maybe that's how it's supposed to be. it just doesn't show up like that on the worksheet.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Assuming 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: \[\log_3(9m) = 1 \rightarrow 3^1 = 9m\] \[m={1 \over 3}\]
