    \[\log_{2}{x^2}=\log_{2}{(y-1)^3} \]now it is clear that \[x^2=(y-1)^3\]so now solve the equation & gt ur answer:)

    and i use the property\[\frac{1}{e}\log_{b}{a}=\log_{b}{a^e} \]

    using the identity\[(x-y)^3=x^3-y^3-3x^2y-3xy^2\]

    so,\[x^2=y^3-1^3-3y^21-3y1^2\]

    @jiteshmeghwal9 formula should be: \[\large e.Log_ba = Log_b(a)^e\]

    This is known as Power rule in Logarithms.. For example: \[Log(x - 1)^2 \implies 2.Log(x-1)\] Or, \[2.Log(x-1) \implies Log(x-1)^2\]

    i meant if \[\LARGE{\log_{a^e}{b}=1/e \log_{a}{b}}\]then it will be\[\LARGE{\log_{a}{b^e} }\]

    you are asked to simplify \[\frac{1}{2}\log _{2}(x) = \frac{1}{3}\log _{2}(y -1)\] multiply both sides by 3 \[\log_{2}(y -1) = \frac{3}{2}\log(x)\]

    now multiply both sides by 2 \[2\log _{2}(y -1) = 3\log_{2}(x)\]

    here is the solution \[\frac{1}{2}\log_{2}(x) + log_{2}(2) = \frac{1}{3}\log_{2}(y)\] multiply every term by 6 \[3\log_{2}(x) + 6\log_{2}(2) = 2\log_{2}(y)\] then \[Log_{2}(2^6x^3) = y^2\] raise to the power of 2 \[64x^3 = y^2\]

    here is a constant source of confusion since log is a function it is really best to write \(\log(x)\) rather than \(\log x\)

    many (in fact maybe most) texts do not do this, but it would clear up the difference, for example, between \(\log(x+1)\)and \(\log (x) + 1\) then gets obscured when you simply write \(\log x + 1\)

    i am assuming the problem is \[\frac{1}{2}\log(x)=\frac{1}{3}\log(y-1)\] but it is hard to know from the way it is written

    whatever it is, if the problem is the one i wrote you can multiply both sides by 6 and get \[3\log(x)=2\log(y-1)\] \[\log(x^3)=\log((y-1)^2)\] and so \[x^3=(y-1)^2\]

    if was something else, say \[\frac{1}{2}\log(x)=\frac{1}{3}\log(y) - 1\] then proceed as @campbell_st above

    @aceace Large Log isn't a mathematical term. @waterineyes was trying to make the text bigger using a LaTeX markup command. Looks like a slash was missing, that's all.
