Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok here are some examples log 2 + log 3 = log (2*3). ln (2/3) = ln 2  ln 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0log 2 + ln 3 does not combine, because they are different bases

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0log 2^3 = 3* log 2 , see if you can find which rule I used

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so log 8 = log (2^3) = 3 log 2 so log 8 = 3 log 2
