1)log_9(x+4)+log_9(x-4)=1

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

- anonymous

typo, the log product should read log ((X+4)(x-4))

- anonymous

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.

- anonymous

so now we can cgange the log by change of bass formula

- anonymous

change*

- anonymous

Hmm..thats where i got stuck. How do you do that?

- anonymous

\[\Large \log _{a}(b)=\frac{\ln(a)}{\ln{b}}\]

- anonymous

it is upto use to change it to any base .i used natural log whose base is e

- anonymous

Hmm...i think i get it.

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

I had another one similar to it:
7^(5x-2)=5^(3-x)

- anonymous

I know you have to log both sides.

- anonymous

yes take ln of both sides

- anonymous

then
use property
\[\Large \log _{a}(b)^n=nlog _{a}b\]
which means exponents gets down and gets multiplied !

- anonymous

let me do the your question now using above property

- anonymous

take ln of both sides\[\Large \ln(7)^{5x-2}=\ln(5)^{3-x}\]
so using the above mentioned property
\[\Large (5x-2)\ln(7)=(3-x)\ln(5)\]

- anonymous

now use calculator to find values of ln7 and ln5

- anonymous

ln7=1.946
ln5=1.609

- anonymous

ln(7)=1.94
ln(5)=1.60
(5x-2)*(1.69)=(3-x)1.609

- anonymous

can you solve this !!

- anonymous

Yesss. I can take it from there, thank you so much!
And the last one, so sorry, is b on the question.

- anonymous

a typo !
correct is
(5x-2)*(1.94)=(3-x)1.609

- anonymous

ok.
u mean this
\[\Large \sqrt{3x-2}-\sqrt{x}=1\]
??

- anonymous

Correct :)

- anonymous

ok
taking square of both sides

- anonymous

Waaiit.

- anonymous

we have
\[\Large (\sqrt{3x-2}-\sqrt{x})^2=1^2\]
using
\[\Large (a-b)^2=a^2+b^2-2ab\]
we have
\[\Large ((3x-2)+x-2\sqrt{3x-2}\sqrt{x})=1\]

- anonymous

Sorry, it was 3x-3

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

Itsokay i will pretend the 2 was really 3

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

Sorry :(

- anonymous

its ok :)
i am notorious for typo mistakes ask anyone here :P

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

Wow, thats good enough! Thank you soo much for your help. I learned a lot!

- anonymous

Also, thank you too @GregTheo

- anonymous

yw:)

- anonymous

\[\sqrt(3x-2)-\sqrt(x)=1\]
add \[\sqrt(x)\] in both sides
