Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OK ... \[5^{x  3} . 3^{2x8} = 225\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How to solve this using log? I'm new so I have no idea.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I guess you can solve this without using Logs..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But I want to know how to do it with log.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Okay then all here will explain you how to do this...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.015^(x3)+(2x8)=225 now we take ln (3x11)15= ln225

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What is In? And how did you get 15^(x3)+(2x8)=225?

moha_10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by multi 3 into 5 to get 15 and the exponent it's added

pratu043

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But how can you just multiply the base and add the exponents?

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Use the following formulas of Logs: \[\large Log(a \times b) = Log(a) + Log(b)\] \[\large Log(a)^b = b.Log(a)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3See, take Log both the sides you will get: \[\large Log(5^{x3}.3^{2x8}) = Log(225)\] Now use the formulas I have written above..

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Use the first formula only...

pratu043

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\log(5^{x3}) . \log(3^{2x8}) = \log 225 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's what I've done here right @waterineyes?

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I give you an example: \[\large Log(2 \times 3) = Log(2) + Log(3)\] Go by this procedure...

pratu043

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I've already done that. So now we should use the second one?

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3You have done it wrongly my friend...

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3See check the formula.. After formula the result will be in sum form and your result is not in sum form.. Is there any + sign in your result???

pratu043

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oops. \[\log(5^{x3}) + \log(3^{2x8}) = \log225\]

waterineyes
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes now you are right... Now 225 is square of what number???

waterineyes
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So can you write 225 as \(15^2\) on right hand side.?? If yes then do it..

pratu043
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\log(5^{x3}) + \log(3^{2x8}) = \log15^{2}\]

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now use the power rule of Logarithms that is the Second Formula that I have given above.. Can you use that??

waterineyes
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I give you an example of that too: \[\large Log(x)^4 = 4.Log(x)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(x3)\log5 + (2x8)\log3 = 2\log15\]

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Can you write 15 as 3*5??

pratu043
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. \[(x3)\log5 + (2x8)\log3 = 2\log(5 * 3)\]

waterineyes
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Then use it and use the first formula again on right hand side...

pratu043
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(x3)\log5 + (2x8)\log3 = 2\log5 + 2\log3\]

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now what you have to do is to compare the coefficients of \(Log3\) and \(Log5\) both the sides can you do that??

waterineyes
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Tell me the coefficient of Log3 on Left hand side and right hand side...

pratu043

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1On LHS its 2x  8 and on RHS its 2.

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Just equate them and find x from it..

waterineyes
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Similarly equate the coefficients of log5 and then also find x you will get the same x in both the case...

pratu043

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(2x8)\log3 = 2\log3\]

waterineyes
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I said to equate the coefficients buddy.. Coefficients are 2x  8 and 2.. you should equate this only...

pratu043
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you should just do 2x8 = 2?

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3See, if : \[\large xlog3 = ylog3\] implies x = y. Getting??

waterineyes
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes you have found x = 5 that is absolutely right...

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now equate the coefficients of log5..

pratu043
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x  3 = 2 x = 2 + 3 = 5

waterineyes
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes got the same value of x so you are right.. If anyhow x values are coming different then either question is wrong or your solution is wrong.. Getting??
