    \[\log_4 7^{-2} \to \log_4 (\frac{1}{49})\to \frac{\log \frac{1}{49}}{\log 4}\]

    Isn't it \[\log_{4} 1 - \log_{4} 7^{2}\]

    @Audrae_World : Is it \[\log_{4} 7^2\]

    That's the closest I've seen so far, but the one of answer choices says: 4log_4 7^2

    Are you sure the problem is \[\log_{4} 7^{-2}\] ?

    \[\log_{4}7^{-2} = -2(\log_{4}7) = -2(\log_{7}7/\log_{7}4) = -2(1/\log_{7}2^{2})\] \[-2(\log_{7}2^{-2}) = -2 * -2(\log_{7}2) = 4\log_{7}2\]
