    Btw : here is hint \[Logx=Logy\] x=y

    well all i did was put log7(x-8)over log7(3)=log7 21 then just took off the log7

    Its not \[ \Large \frac{Log_{7}(x-8)}{Log_{7}(3)}\] It is : \[ \Large Log_{7} \frac{(x-8)}{(3)}\]

    So now u have \[ \Large \frac{x-8}{3}=21\] 63=x-8 x=71

    lets look over some basic properties such as log(a/b) = log a - log b and log(a*b)= log a + log b and if logx= log y then x=y just because everything is in the base of 7 we could use these properties as well so therefore from your question log7 (x – 8) – log7 3 = log7 21 let us use the first property on the left side and get log7((x-8)/3) = log 7 21and now let us use the third property to obtain (x-8)/3 = 21 and that will get us x-8 = 63 and now solve for x to obtain x = 71 :)
