log2=0.3010 log3=0.4771 simplify log20
I'm stuck at log2+log2+log5, if i split up the log5, i would get log(2+3) but that isn't the same as log2+log3 so i'm probably missing something or using the wrong factors to start with... what am i supposed to do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think you are right, there is no way of getting log(20) in terms of log(3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But i think you can with \[\log(4*5) = \log4 + \log5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4it's the same thing i expanded, but apparently you're supposed to use the values they gave you...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ohh, but 2 and 3 won't work; so i thought of another approach..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0probably, u can use log 60 = log 2 + log 3 + log 10. It has the same meaning with log 60 = 2*log 2 + log 3 + log 5. so u can getting log 5 there. Compare log 60 = log 2 + log 3 + log 10.......(1) log 60 = 2*log 2 + log 3 + log 5.....(2) so log 2 + log 3 + log 10 = 2*log 2 + log 3 + log 5 log 5 = log 2 + log 3 + log 10  2*log 2  log 3 then u can getting log 5 from here. log 20 = 2*log 2 + log 5 then substitute log 5, that we have had found. Perhaps, the way that i had given to u, can helping u to solve this problem. Thank you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0log20 = log(2x10) = log2+log10 = log2+1 = 0.3010 +1 = 1.3010 then you can finish the task with the given value the a truth :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it doesn't state that you must use the value log3 !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.020 = 2 * 10 > log( 2 * 10) = log2 + log10 = .3010 + 1 = 1.3010
