    log 3x-log 3x^2 = log 3 - log 3x = - log x = d =common difference S= n/2 (2 a1+(n-1)d) = n/2 (2 log 3x^2 - (n-1)log x)

    common difference is -log x (base as a ) nth term is given by log3 +2logx + (n-1)(-logx)= log3 +(3-n)logx (throughout base is a as given in the question.

    how did you go from log3 +2logx + (n-1)(-logx) to log3 +(3-n)logx ?

    log3 +2logx + (n-1)(-logx) = log3 +2logx + (1-n)(logx)= log3+(2+1-n) logx =log3+(3-n)logx= log3x^(3-n) take base as a

    This is making my eyes bleed. \[ \log_a(3x^2)-\log_a(x) = \log_a(3x) \text{ etc...} \] so if \[a_1 = \log_a(3x^2) \] we have \[\large{a_n = \log_a(3x^2)-(n-1)\log_a(x) = \log_a(3x^{3-n})}\]

    If that was addressed to me, I just rewrote it in LaTeX so looked nicer. I know.
