First combine the logs ( addition of log is multiplication) log(x+4) + log(x-4) = Log ((x+4)/(x-4)) raise everything from base 9 for part one, doing this cancels the log because they are inverse functions and 9^1 is just 9 resulting in (x+4)(x-4) = 9 distribute x^2 -16 = 9 x^2 = 25 x= + or -5
typo, the log product should read log ((X+4)(x-4))
ok lets solve it since \[\Large \log(a)+\log(b)=\log(ab)\] (addition changes to multiplication \[\Large \log _{9}((x+4)(x-4))=1\] since \[\Large a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b)\] so \[\Large \log _{9}(x^2-16)=1\]

Yes, I got as far as @sami-21 But got stuck. I knew the answer was 5. Didnt know how to get it.
so now we can cgange the log by change of bass formula
change*
Hmm..thats where i got stuck. How do you do that?
\[\Large \log _{a}(b)=\frac{\ln(a)}{\ln{b}}\]
it is upto use to change it to any base .i used natural log whose base is e
Hmm...i think i get it.
ok
I had another one similar to it: 7^(5x-2)=5^(3-x)
I know you have to log both sides.
yes take ln of both sides
then use property \[\Large \log _{a}(b)^n=nlog _{a}b\] which means exponents gets down and gets multiplied !
let me do the your question now using above property
take ln of both sides\[\Large \ln(7)^{5x-2}=\ln(5)^{3-x}\] so using the above mentioned property \[\Large (5x-2)\ln(7)=(3-x)\ln(5)\]
now use calculator to find values of ln7 and ln5
ln7=1.946 ln5=1.609
ln(7)=1.94 ln(5)=1.60 (5x-2)*(1.69)=(3-x)1.609
can you solve this !!
Yesss. I can take it from there, thank you so much! And the last one, so sorry, is b on the question.
a typo ! correct is (5x-2)*(1.94)=(3-x)1.609
ok. u mean this \[\Large \sqrt{3x-2}-\sqrt{x}=1\] ??
Correct :)
ok taking square of both sides
Waaiit.
we have \[\Large (\sqrt{3x-2}-\sqrt{x})^2=1^2\] using \[\Large (a-b)^2=a^2+b^2-2ab\] we have \[\Large ((3x-2)+x-2\sqrt{3x-2}\sqrt{x})=1\]
Sorry, it was 3x-3
ok
Itsokay i will pretend the 2 was really 3
ok
Sorry :(
its ok :) i am notorious for typo mistakes ask anyone here :P
have a look at here http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=solve%28sqrt%283x-3%29-sqrt%28x%29%3D1%29 its quite difficult to type :P
Wow, thats good enough! Thank you soo much for your help. I learned a lot!
Also, thank you too @GregTheo
yw:)
\[\sqrt(3x-2)-\sqrt(x)=1\] add \[\sqrt(x)\] in both sides
