    Are you familiar with the properties of logarithms? \[\log_{b} (m*n) = \log_{b} m + \log_{b}n \] \[\log_{b}(m/n) = \log_{b}m - \log_{b}n \] \[\log_{b}m ^{x} = x \log_{b} m \]

    yes but I tried each of the 4 potential answers and I keep getting the wrong answer. I think it might be the last one.

    Start by applying the third property to all applicable logs, so \[2\log_{3} y = \log_{3} y ^{2}\]

    the answer is in the list, maybe your mistake was you got \[\log_{3}\frac{ \sqrt{x} }{ y ^{2}z ^{4} }\] ??

    I just tried it again.... the equations you gave me helped!! I see what I did wrong, of course it was simple miscalculation :p
