Is this what you mean?

okay we will need to convert log(x) to ln(x) using a given equation

juantweaver Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
we are doing this since there are no log(x) in the final answer

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

juantweaver Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so for log base 10\[\log _{10}(x)=\frac{\ln(x)}{\ln(10)}\]

go ahead and convert this in the expression above. see what you get.

you had forgotten the x in the denominator, i simply added it back

\[\frac{\ln(x)}{x*\ln(10)}+\frac{\log(x)}{x}=\frac{\ln(x)}{x*\ln(10)}+\frac{\ln(x)/\ln(10)}{x}\]

juantweaver Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then move ln(10) to the denominator of the 2nd fraction

where does the log (x) / x come from?
 2 years ago

juantweaver Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
from the original expression that you gave me. you wrote it as \[\log(x)*\frac{1}{x}\]

yes, unless i was mistaken by what you wrote
