well all i did was put log7(x8)over log7(3)=log7 21 then just took off the log7

Its not \[ \Large \frac{Log_{7}(x8)}{Log_{7}(3)}\] It is : \[ \Large Log_{7} \frac{(x8)}{(3)}\]

So now u have \[ \Large \frac{x8}{3}=21\] 63=x8 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((x8)/3) = log 7 21and now let us use the third property to obtain (x8)/3 = 21 and that will get us x8 = 63 and now solve for x to obtain x = 71 :)
