hmmm ? I don't understand the equation.

2. catgirl17 Group Title

$1/2 \log_{5} 16- 3\log_{5} x+ 4\log_{5} y$

3. asnaseer Group Title

do you know all the log rules?

4. asnaseer Group Title

if not - consult this page: http://www.purplemath.com/modules/logrules.htm you should then be able to solve this

5. catgirl17 Group Title

yes i think i do

6. asnaseer Group Title

an example step would be:$3\log_5x=\log_5x^3$

7. FoolForMath Group Title

$\frac 12 \log_5 16-3 \log_5 x+4 \log_5 y = \log_5 \frac{4 y^4}{x^3}$

I guess FoolForMath has given away the answer - but try and do it yourself to convince yourself that this is the right answer :)

Yes I guess I am wrong.
