Is this what you mean?

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

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

juantweaverBest 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

where does the log (x) / x come from?
 one year ago

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

juantweaverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1

juantweaverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, unless i was mistaken by what you wrote
